Presentations
Like Minds Taranaki has recorded several presentations made to the public by ourselves and other service providers that may be of interest to you.
Research shows up to half of Wellington teenagers have engaged in some sort of self injurious behaviour by the time they are 18 and GPs and guidance counsellors report a spike in such behaviour among teens in post quake Christchurch.
For parents the revelation their child has deliberately self-harmed, often in the solitary secrecy of their bedroom at home using simple household objects is a profound shock.
Radio New Zealand's Sally Round talks to young people who have engaged in this form of self harm as well as those caring for them and asks whether enough is being done to build resilience among New Zealand's youth.
Public Presentation during MHAW 2014 "Managing Stress in the Workplace" by TDHB Professional Leader of Psychology Drew Hignett and "Workplace Bullying" by Ally McCullagh from McCullagh Consulting.
