Presented By The Black Dog Institute
Peter Langston, a local Tamworth resident and volunteer community speaker for Black Dog Institute, will present a 30min community presentation, Breaking Down Depression and Building Resilience.
This presentation is suitable for general audiences, and will provide information about what mood disorders are, their causes, how to spot early warning signs, how to get the right help and support, and how to build personal resilience. The desired outcome is that people will be better informed, better equipped to identify warning signs and feel more comfortable seeking help and communicating more openly and honestly. Peter has his own personal experience with mental illness, and will speak about his own experiences as part of the presentation.
Following the presentation, Peter will be available for a question and answer session, where audience members can ask him about his own experiences, or can speak about the upcoming Tamworth Dramatic Society production Geoffrey, written by Peter Langston.
Peter is using the opportunity of the staging of this production to raise the general awareness and education of mental illness in the Tamworth region.
