MENTAL AS ANYTHING: A TALK about mental health and wellbeing

"The feedback has been amazing and we’re still receiving comments about the morning.   From my perspective I think it was that wonderful balance between your penchant for the comedic lens and the absolute seriousness of the subject – not an easy task but so well delivered – thank you for that." Sandra George, Manager, South East Business Networks, City of Greater Dandenong
"Thank you... you were brilliant and contributed to the overall success of our event... You brought a topic [mental health] that is seldom entertaining to life. You challenged stigma, changed behaviours and were absolutely hilarious, which is exactly what we were hoping for... I'd be delighted if we could work together on similar events in the future." John Fenely, Commissioner, Mental Health Commission of NSW
