Government of Canada Bell Let's Talk Day with Andrew Jensen


Join the Centre of Expertise on Mental Health in the Workplace, the Canada School of Public Service and your colleagues across Canada for a national conversation on mental health featuring Bell Let's Talk Ambassador Andrew Jensen.

A professional golfer and PGA Tour Canada alumnus, Andrew Jensen first experienced depression in his adolescence, culminating in a suicide attempt at age 16. Golf was his refuge in those tumultuous teenage years, and up until the immense pressure and stress of playing the game professionally became his undoing in the fall of 2011. Two suicide attempts in a 3‑week span led to Andrew's hospitalization … and to forging a path forward in recovery to become a leading Canadian mental health advocate.

"I am living a story. I will not give up," reads the tattoo on Andrew's arm. A compelling story of resilience in the face of adversity that inspires audiences whenever Andrew takes to the stage or to YouTube.

This event is presented in partnership with the Federal Youth Network and the Canadian Innovation Centre on Mental Health in the Workplace at Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada.
