Belief-Courage-Persistence are three words that I live my life by and is evident in what and how I present, I have a long history in junior sports coaching and believe very much in early intervention for youth and adoloscent mental health. Life presents many challenges and given that 1 in 4 people with a mental illness develop that mental illness before the age of 25 it is crucial that society has as many 'Youth and Standard Mental Health First Aiders' in the community as is possible. Having two young boys myself I get to see how precious they are every day and the opportunity that I and others have to provide as good an environment as possible for all young people to grow up in, develope and thrive in is a priviledge and not to be taken for granted. Passion and engagement is how I present this vital information to ensure that all participants head back to their normal life both well informed and with a real sense of awareness. I am happy to travel and you will not be disappointed knowing that I put more than 100% into every session.
