    What is The Dialogue Xchange?

    The Dialogue Xchange is a community-powered forum for engaged dialogue on pressing social issues. We are powered by local communities, for local communities. We believe that conversation is the ultimate human interest activity and a remedy for alienation from society which is at the core of a lot of the world's most pressing issues. Interested in bringing us to your city? Want to learn more about partnerships and sponsorship opportunities?

    What is The Mental Health Dialogue?

    Mental Health is a pressing topic around the world and Waterloo's community is no exception. The number of people hurting or having minimal access to support in our community is one of the city's most well kept secrets. It has been deemed a crisis and we need to not only start the conversation but keep the conversation alive. In a city and community that is relentlessly advancing and seeing so much success, the success also often comes with spurs of anxiety, stress and pressure which if not addressed can impact the community negatively. Join us in this engaged dialogue to find out what people are doing/saying around Mental Health in the city and learn more about ways through which you can get involved and take ownership for your community's wellbeing. Lets talk! Check out the Facebook page for more information:
