At the end of July 2016 I was invited to speak at the inaugural North American Polyglot Symposium conference in Montreal, Canada. Here's my presentation: Language Learning Against Depression
About the Presentation
In this presentation I share my own story of depression, and how the language learning community was a huge tool for my success in climbing out of the proverbial hole.
I also touch on why language learning is a good antidote to depression and encourage people to help each other and talk about these issues instead of hiding them.

Note: It's going to be hard to follow my talk with these slides, so I'm mostly uploading them here so you can see what they looked like. There's over 100 slides!
