25 June 2019 Panel Talk - Empowering youth with life affirming choices

A passionate panel of health experts spoke about specific day to day things that may provoke depression and suicidal thinking in young people and then provide simple actionable tips to prevent it.  These were not your 'Google top ten tips', but instead the nitty gritty of why we think and act the way we do and what we can actually do - right now - to change the behaviours that are holding us back. 


It was a sell out event with standing room only and we received very positive feedback from all who attended. 


Many thanks to our panel speakers, you guys are great! 


Our panel for this evening was:

Enrico Massi, Director of CrossFit Athletic

Exercise and good nutrition changed Enrico's life, helping him regain control of his body, movement, stress levels and general outlook and he is a firm believer that to exercise regularly is one of the most important things we can do for our bodies and minds. At CrossFit Athletic, his focus is mostly on strategy, business matters, financial management, other operational aspects and he will occasionally coach a fitness class.   

Prior to working at CrossFit Athletic, Enrico worked in financial markets for many years. Enrico studied both Architecture and Accounting in the US and Australia and has a Certificate III and IV for Fitness, is a CrossFit Level 2 Trainer, an OpexFit Certified Coach and a Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certified Coach.

Belinda Randell, Director and Founder of The Organic Cook

Belinda is a qualified chef and a food as medicine specialist. Belinda is also highly sought after as an expert in recovery cooking for cancer, auto immune disease, fertility and postnatal recovery. Belinda is motivated by organic and local food sources and has been eating organic food for 20 years. She has formally studied and also tried many things on herself! After the birth of her child she was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease which makes her even more committed to a life-time journey of food as medicine for herself and her clients.

Belinda works alongside naturopaths, doctors, dieticians and complementary practitioners helping their clients heal using traditional food as medicine principles. She has serviced 100's of clients in the last 10 years as a professional personal chef, working for high profile clients known in the media and also everyday busy families. In addition, Belinda is a certified Health Coach, having gained her credentials from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition based in New York (US) and holds a Certificate in Nutrition from Beck Health in Sydney.

Her passion, alongside cooking is living the best lifestyle she can with organic food and a positive mindset!

Dr. Sukmun Cumberworth (BSc DC (Canada), Director and principal chiropractor at Gonstead Chiro

Sukmun has 20 years of experience practicing in Canada, USA, Mexico, New Zealand and Australia, as well as teaching Chiropractic in Australia and New Zealand. She is well respected within the profession and in the community. She is bilingual in French and English. Her particular interest is in the mind body connection.

Sukmun will speak on what you can do from a practical standpoint to either pull yourself out of a depressed situation or help someone else.  Most people understand that if they eat well, move well and think well, they will feel better.  Finding the motivation to do so though, may not be so easy.  She spoke about about how simple things can change the brain and help reboot the system from a stressed state to a rest and repair state.
