Mental Health in Times of Change with Anthony McLean

Counseling services have seen a 400% increase in people reaching out for help during the COVID-19 crisis. This time of massive change has left many feeling vulnerable and uncertain about the future, but there are scientifically proven skills that can help boost our resiliency so that we can cope with challenges.

In this interactive presentation, Anthony McLean shares practical coping skills for stress as well as the importance of reaching out for help when we’re really struggling. Above all, he reminds us that mental health is a journey we take as a community, and that when we support each other, we break the stigma around mental health and empower those who need it the most.

Audiences will learn:

• The difference between everyday ups and downs, temporary mental health problems, and mental illnesses.

• Healthy coping skills to deal with stress and anxiety.

• The role exercise, sleep, hydration, and nutrition play in mental health.

• How to empower themselves to reach out for help when they need it

Big Daddy Tazz

After 30 years of denying he had the mental illnesses that were controlling his life, Big Daddy Tazz realized that being manic-depressive, attention deficit, and having mild dyslexia could either destroy or enhance his life… it was his choice. 

Often described as “one of the most talented comics in the business”, Big Daddy Tazz has been delighting crowds at fundraisers, corporate events, festivals and on television for more than a decade and a half. Known as the “Bi-Polar Buddha”, Tazz is equal parts comedian and motivational speaker, who likes to enlighten, educate and inspire. As a result, his one-man shows have drawn rave reviews and standing ovations from coast-to-coast.
