The Anarchist's Guide to Mental Wellbeing
Matthew Peppercorn has been a registered nurse for 25 years. He has worked with many people experiencing mental distress. As a private nurse with TASK Mental Wellness he undertakes grass roots sessions across NZ to strengthen whanau and communities. He does these in collaboration with local people and premises. The short falls of the mental health services, poor funding and the difficulties to obtain support are complex.
They have driven Matthew to create work shops to support people to support themselves and those around them.
Matthew will run 3 sessions of 1 hour each covering anxiety and depression, routes to well being and the Anarchists guide to get the services you are entitled to.
He will talk about his own experiences with mental distress, provide humorous stories and show you ways to recover when you feel there is no hope. More so he will give you skills to support people in mental distress and teach you what to do in situations that may arise.
