Michael Hempseed from The Collaborative Trust speaks on Mental Health and your Teenager – What can parents do?

Mental illness affects 1 in 5 New Zealanders. A lot of parents worry about their child and mental illness.

In this interactive talk you will gain a lot more confidence to help a young person with a mental illness. You will learn: What are the warning signs? What are the causes of mental illness? What are the right and wrong things to say? And you will learn where to find help for a young person with mental illness.

Michael Hempseed is a highly sought after professional speaker. Michael gained an honours degree in psychology from the University of Canterbury in 2008. He has delivered more than 80 inspiring and informative seminars over the last two years, on such diverse topics as overcoming failure, mental illness and the teenage brain.

Funny, full of enthusiasm and taking a genuine interest in people are all qualities that make Michael a captivating speaker. Michael loves to travel, having visited over 34 countries, including Cambodia, Morocco, China, India, Brazil and many others. In addition to this he hosts a radio show called Lighthouse of Hope.

Bookings essential. Please bring a gold coin on the day.
