EVENT SPEAKERS

Dr Hazel Harrison is a Lead Clinical Psychologist with the NHS specialising in working with children, young people and families. In 2015, Hazel set up ThinkAvellana with a mission to bring psychology out of the clinic and into schools and workplaces. Her belief that prevention is better than cure drives her to share ideas about how people can take care of their mental health and wellbeing. A speaker at national conferences, Hazel also writes for online and print publications. Her article ‘How to teach your kids about the brain’ featured in the mindful.org ‘Top 10 Most Read’ list for 2016.

Hazel will be speaking about key changes during adolescence and why these matter when considering wellbeing, stress, resilience and mental health. She will share a positive model of teenage development that will help parents, carers and teachers make sense of this life stage and the confusing behaviour that accompanies it.
