The Collaborative Trust will be bringing some of our most requested workshops to Invercargill in March.

Presented by Michael Hempseed, these workshops are a must for counsellors, teachers, youth/social workers, nurses, and ANYONE working with Youth!

Anxiety and/or depression affects around 1 in 6 young New Zealanders. This workshop will give you a solid understanding of mental illness in young people based on the latest scientific evidence, presented in a way that is easy to understand. This evidence based, best practice workshop will empower you to help a young person with a mental illness. Key learnings will be:
  • An understanding of brain development in young people and maintaining mental health
  • A basic understanding of mental illness
  • What is the difference between normal human emotions and mental illness
  • How to help a young person who is struggling with a mental illness
  • Where to find help and how to make sure they get there
