Event description

Description

Mentis Training and Consultancy Ltd introduce you to the people behind the statistics.

It is important for those going through the experience, those close to them and more importantly, their employers to know that life changing events can happen to anyone. However, you can come through and either recover completely or live a well balanced life with mental illness. Many lives are affected, not just the person going through it. Mental illness isn't going away so we all need to learn how to manage it.

The seminar speakers will talk about their experience, then how they reached through the cloud to where they are now. This will be followed by a very special comedy show, Twin Peaks.

Our speakers are as follows:


MICHELLE PARTINGTON – Michelle experienced sexual abuse as a child but once it stopped, the impact didn’t. It affected how she interacted with others, trusted and formed relationships. Michelle battled with her sexuality, clouded by the abuse.

DENISE WELCH – Screening of the award winning Black Eyed Susan followed by a Q&A. The film is a powerful portrayal of Denise’s own experience with depression. Denise has become a great ambassador for mental health and has been involved in many campaigns to help raise awareness.

JENNY HARDMAN – Following a lifetime of domestic abuse Jenny believes that it’s not what happens to us that matters but how we react that makes a difference. It is ultimately our choice in how we respond and is here to tell her story of how she managed her own self care and of those around her.

MICHELLE TURNER – A true story or resilience, bravery and overcoming adversity following a life changing illness which ended a 20 year career in the Royal Air Force. She will talk about how her daughter saved her life and how she is now turning her life around.

ZACH RICHARDS - Zach is a proud transgender man who was able to come out in relative safety and begin transition. From a young age Zach was subjected to gender and sexuality conversion therapy, as well as ongoing stigmatised by an unsupportive family. Zach will talk about the mental effects of transphobia .

ZOE THOMPSON – In June 15 whilst on holiday in Tunisia, Zoe and her family where caught up in the beach terrorist attack. Zoe will talk about how she is moving forward with her life follow a struggle, how she is supporting others but still finds it a struggle to source support for her daughter Millie.

BARRY HUGHES – Hillsborough, a snowdrops journey. One spring day full of hope, optimism and sunshine at Hillsborough, disaster struck which shaped his journey with PTSD over the last 29 years.

MANDY TOOTILL & ANGELA BOOTH – When faced with her own mortality, how does Mandy cope? She laughs into the cleavage of cancer because laughter is the breast medicine. Mandy will be closing the show with her truly inspirational comedy show Twin Peaks, followed by a Q&A with her partner Angela.

Here are the people behind the stats. This is real life and can affect any one at any time. Mental health does not discriminate.

If you want to learn how to adopt coping strategies in case a life changing event happens to you or you want to learn how to help someone else then this seminar will provide you with thus.
