Speaker Line-Up

2010 June 12
by moritherapy

Here is our initial speaker lineup for Vancouver’s 2010 MentalHealthCamp. There may be a few changes but that’s the general idea. Towards the end of June, we will flesh the program out and also give you links to all the speakers’ sites.

“Mental Moose” slots are opportunities for people to propose sessions the morning of the conference. The sessions will be voted on by participants, and the proposals with the most votes will be slotted into the available times. It’s called “Mental Moose” in nostalgic memory of Northern Voice’s Moosecamp.

    I am super stoked, excited and euphoric about this camp! But maybe its because I have bi-polar disorder!
