Event Details

Join us for an inspiring evening as Professor Tanya Byron explores how we can survive and thrive in the modern world.

The frantic pace of modern life presents big challenges for our mental wellbeing - from the always-on nature of digital devices and social media to the difficulties of juggling our many different work commitments, projects, relationships and family needs.

Prof Byron will explore these challenges and share some practical things we can do to look after our psychological health, deal effectively with modern technology, cope better with challenges and help create healthier relationships and happier families.

"Mistakes are our greatest lessons and other people our greatest teachers. As Tanya Byron describes so eloquently, life is about connection. There is nothing else~ Sally Brampton
