ILANZ Conference 2021
Jehan Casinader is a journalist, author and mental health advocate.
He has reported for TVNZ’s flagship programmes, including Sunday, Seven Sharp, Close Up and Breakfast. He was named “Broadcast Reporter of the Year” at the Voyager Media Awards in 2020, and “Reporter of the Year” at the New Zealand Television Awards in 2018.
He is the author of This Is Not How It Ends: How rewriting your story can save your life.
We are delighted that Jehan will be sharing his story at conference in his session ‘The Power of Stories’.
Each of us has a story about who we are, where we’ve come from and where we might be going.
But where do those stories come from? How do our stories influence our mental health? And how can we tell more helpful, hopeful stories about our lives – especially as we navigate the ups and downs of Covid-19?
Jehan Casinader has wrestled with these questions. He’s one of New Zealand’s top TV journalists. He is also a survivor of depression and suicidality.
Jehan will teach us about the powerful link between storytelling and mental health, and offer a fresh, challenging perspective on how we can look after our wellbeing.
Jehan will be speaking on Day 2 of the conference, for more information and to register click here.
