MENtal Health Breakfast

MENtal Health Breakfast
Be informed and inspired at our Men’s Mental Health Breakfast being hosted during Men’s Health Week. After the success of the inaugural MENtal Health Breakfast last year the event is back and bigger than before!
This year our impressive presenters will cover a range of topics designed to improve our mental health and wellbeing. Although the breakfast will focus on Men’s mental health, the information will be relevant to men and women of all ages.
Keynote Speakers, Topics and Bio’s:
David Gillespie | Author. Speaker. Social Entrepreneur.
Why Screens Are Making Your Teenager Depressed, Anxious and Prone to Lifelong Addictive Illnesses – and How to Stop It Now.
David Gillespie is a lawyer and the author of Sweet Poison, a bestselling book published in 2008 about how we are all poisoning ourselves with sugar. That book is generally credited with starting the current wave of sugar awareness in Australia.
He followed Sweet Poison up with 4 more books about nutrition and diet. Having upset the dietetics industry by writing about stuff in which he has no qualifications, he then turned his focus to something else he is unqualified to write about, education, in his 2014 work, Free Schools.
Detouring briefly back to nutrition in his 7th and 8th books (Eat Real food, 2015 and the Eat Real Food Cookbook 2016), his latest target is Psychology. In 2017, he released his much-anticipated book on surviving contact with psychopaths in the workplace and at home, Taming Toxic People, and then this year wrote Teen Brain, a book about how teenagers are uniquely susceptible to addiction and why that is a very big problem in an age where addictive screen time is the norm for every single teen.
