Waikato All About Anxiety – Afternoon workshop
Jun 21 @ 12:00 pm – 2:30 pm

Do you experience anxiety? Do you know someone with anxiety? Do you want to find out more about it? 

Matthew Peppercorn from TASK Mental Wellness will present two workshops on anxiety that will help you recognise and understand feelings of anxiousness, the effect it can have between yourself and your children, plan your supports and learn the relationship between depression and anxiety and autism and anxiety.

You can attend either the morning or evening session. Whatever suits you best. These workshops are free but a koha or donation would be gratefully received.
