Educational, inspirational talk and nourishing ‘mood food’ dinner  

DATE: JUNE 27TH – 6:30-8:30PM

Calm the F#@K Down! is the perfect event for anyone who feels overwhelmed by life or stress. Stress affects us all but ultimately ongoing, unrelenting stress is non-sustainable; something mentally or physically eventually has to give.

Matthew Johnstone has combined his own experience living with depression and his creative background in advertising. He has written and illustrated a series of very simple books,  four of which have been bestsellers in Australia and the UK.  His most well known ‘I Had a Black Dog’ became the basis of a World Health Organisation campaign about depression. His third book, The Alphabet of the Human Heart -The illustrated A to Z on what it is to be human, made number 4 for UK book sales in January 2011 and went to #9 on the Sunday Times Bestseller List.
