Youth mental health organisation batyr facilitates face-to-face preventative education programs at schools, universities and workplaces with the intention of reducing stigma around mental health.
Host Jerome Doraisamy is joined by the organisation’s CEO Nic Brown, on this episode of The Wellness Daily Show, to share why batyr’s mission is so significant to him on a personal level, the major environmental factors that affect mental health in young people, and some practical methods of addressing these issues.
Nic explains the importance of demonstrating vulnerability in creating a safe environment for others, how parents can best encourage their kids to open up about mental health, and why healthy habits around technology should be established.
