Youth Mental-Health & Wellbeing Advocate to Share His Insights

An acclaimed advocate for youth mental health and suicide prevention, Nic Newling, is visiting the Northern Beaches to share his unique insights and experiences with local parents, carers, teachers and high school students in a free public presentation (6.30 – 8:30pm, Wednesday 28 November).

Nic, who spent his teenage years in Avalon, has personally experienced the pain of a mood disorder and losing his brother to suicide.

He counts himself fortunate to have received family, peer and professional support during the turbulent teen years, allowing him to recover and heal.

He has since dedicated himself to changing the way mental illness is addressed in schools, workplaces, and communities, reaching out to millions of people through television, live talks, documentaries, eHealth programs and much more.

The key to Nic’s approach to making a positive impact is by “sharing and listening” to encourage helpful, unscripted conversations around mental health, suicide prevention, and getting the most out of life.

In his presentation, Nic will share his personal experience of family, life and school in an environment where he felt he had to spend each day hiding.

Nic details the road to healing and thriving that he and his family eventually moved along and details what we can all learn in order to help ourselves and the people around us.

The Nic Newling Speakers Night event is free, but bookings are essential on ‘Eventbrite’

Location is Barrenjoey High School, Coonanga Road, Avalon. Parking is available in Tasman Road.

The Nic Newling Speakers Night is brought to you by Northern Beaches Council in partnership with Barrenjoey High School and is supported by Headspace, Avalon Youth Hub and Community Care Northern Beaches
