Sick is not Weak: Discussing Mental Illness

with Michael Landsberg

Nov 25 2014, 7:30PM to 9:00PM in the Hendeles Chapel.
NOTE: This event has already occurred.

Michael Landsberg shares his experiences with mental illness

TSN's Michael Landsberg has always been a polarizing broadcaster. People either enjoy his 'confidence' or dislike his 'arrogance'. That changed five years ago with his on-air announcement that he suffers from an anxiety disorder and depression. While people might still think he is pushy, they respect his honesty and candour in facing and discussing mental illness. Join us as Michael shares his experiences and offers a better understanding of this often misunderstood illness.

Michael Landsberg, a Canadian sports television personality, is hot of TSN's Off the Record. Diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder and depression, he was featured in Vista Magazine discussing his illness, and produced and hosted the candid and raw documentary "Darkness and Hope: Depression, Sports and Me" for CTV.
