Mental Health Speaker Series

Please note: 

As the current public health crisis continues to evolve, we are continuing to monitor the situation very closely. The safety and well-being of all of our constituents is our highest priority.

On Friday, March 27, 2020, Carleton University, after broad consultation, has determined to postpone or cancel all Carleton in person events until June 30, 2020. As a result of this decision, Healthy Workplace is cancelling all in-person activities until June 30, 2020.

As Carleton University continues to follow our safe meetings and social distancing guidelines, Healthy Workplace has transitioned to providing services remotely during our regular business hours (8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday to Friday).

The best way to connect with Healthy Workplace is by email. You should receive a reply to your inquiry within 1 business day.

For the most up to date campus information, please visit Carleton’s COVID-19 information website.


The Healthy Workplace “Mental Health Speaker Series” consists of a variety of topics presented by Carleton faculty members. Our guest speakers will discuss their research in the area of mental health and wellness. This speaker series is offered in partnership with the Department of Psychology.
