      NZATD Wellington Branch June Event - Who is Looking After You?

      Who is looking after you? As learning and development professionals and trainers we look to supporting the mental health and wellbeing of our learners but do we give ourselves the same level of attention.  All trainers have times when they struggle with the requirements of their role whether it is travel, aggressive delivery dates, challenging groups, or negative feedback. We expect a lot of ourselves and without proper consideration that can be our undoing. We are grateful that international speaker Mary O’Hagan is going to inspire us to think about ourselves and our wellbeing in a new way.   She will also be available to help us to discuss and share our personal insights (if we want)with other participants, and to answer any questions that we have.     The Speaker:  Mary O'Hagan Mary O’Hagan was a key initiator of the psychiatric survivor movement in New Zealand in the late 1980s, and was the first chairperson of the World Network of Users and Survivors of Psychiatry between 1991 and 1995. She has been an advisor to the United Nations and the World Health Organization. Mary was a full-time Mental Health Commissioner in New Zealand between 2000 and 2007. Mary is now director of the international social enterprise PeerZone, which provides peer-led resources for people with mental distress and the people who support them in employment, higher education and mental health services. Mary has written an award-winning memoir called ‘Madness Made Me’. She was made a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit in 2015 and was awarded the Wellington Gold Awards New Thinking Award in 2017. All Mary’s work has been driven by her quest for social justice for one of the most marginalised groups in our communities.   Date: Tuesday 25th June Time: 07:30pm – 9:30pm Venue:  Jackstone House, Level 3, 11 Hunter Street Investment:   $20.00 –Members & Affiliates (HRINZ, AITD, NSANZ, TechComNZ, ICFA, IABC, NZOQ, CDNZ & DEANZ) $40.00 (incl.
