motivational speaker Victoria Maxwell

Since being diagnosed with bipolar disorder, anxiety and psychosis, Victoria has become one of North America’s top speakers on the ‘lived’ experience of mental illness and recovery. In addition to being a mental health worker, she’s worked for over 20 years as an actress and writer for both film and stage. Victoria has worked alongside David Duchovny, John Travolta and Johnny Depp, among others.

Her presentation will assist students, faculty members and staff better understand the ‘insider’s’ experience of mental illness and recovery.  It will raise awareness of post-secondary mental health issues, particularly depression, anxiety and bipolar disorder, help identify student mental illness earlier.  More importantly, the presentation will offer tools and hope to build recovery and reduce stigma of this, one of the very last taboos.

Victoria is a charismatic keynoter and performer whose honest, often hilariously irreverent approach to her own experiences disarms the prejudices often associated with mental illness, even as she provides crucial information on how to deal with it openly and effectively.
