About this Event
M.E.N.D is a charitable community outreach event that will be held on SATURDAY 04 FEBRUARY 2023 and aims to raise awareness of men's mental health with a focus on the benefits of exercise and nutrition in mental (“brain”) health. There is also an increased risk of suicide in men compared to women which is a much-needed and often overlooked area of focus.
We have an amazing line-up of guest speakers who will be sharing their personal and/or professional experiences of mental health with attendees. We aim to provide a range of talks that will cover the topics of nutrition, exercise, mental health, ADHD, Addiction, suicide prevention, and more. This event is particularly suited for parents, professionals working in the field of mental health who recognise the increased risks attached to neurodevelopmental conditions such as ADHD in terms of addictions and youth offending, individuals and/or their partners who are struggling with their mental health, those working in the nutrition, health and wellness industries and those impacted by any area of suicide.
Our inspirational line-up will include: Professor John Stein, University of Oxford, Jonny Benjamin, MBE award-winning mental health campaigner, film producer, public speaker, writer and vlogger, Legendary DJ's Brandon Block and Jumpin Jack Frost, Actor Paul Danan, Ian Hurst, Director & Co-Founder of We are Hummingbird (suicide prevention), Mike Pickett, Founder of Raver Tots (Adult ADHD) and Ross Mac (DJ, Founder of RM events) and more to be announced!
The event will start at 10.30 AM with refreshments and networking, we then invite attendees to sit down (at tables) and enjoy talks. Lunch is served at 12.30 followed by afternoon talks and a Q&A panel discussion on mental health, with questions led by the audience. We finish the day at 5.00 pm with another networking session and some music. There will also be opportunities for exhibitors in the natural health and wellness sector to sell books or merchandise related to nutrition and exercise. We will be providing goody bags to all attendees.
