2 Comments   |   ksmith   |   Mar 30, 2012

Change the Mental Health Conversation
Part of a series recapping Health Talks: Bold Ideas to Transform Health Care. Ten inspiring speakers, comprising a blend of health care providers and the public, used the Pecha Kucha-powered 20 x 20 format (20 slides, 20 seconds each) to answer our question: What are your hopes for a better health care system?

Aidan is the founder of aidanBOX – an organization dedicated to bringing awareness and innovation to mental health. His experience comes from being a survivor of a mental illness and having experienced recovery in both the youth and adult mental health systems. Aidan’s story was the night’s most personal, and it had the audience’s full attention.

Graphic Illustration
Graphic facilitator Avril Orloff transformed the Health Talks speakers’ words into brilliant illustrations. Her visual interpretations, which she steadily sketched beside the audience on a giant posterboard, captured compelling moments of each presentation over many different topics. Aidan’s graphic is displayed on the left.
