Psynamo Group| Project: Community Mental Health – SPRING 2019 Learning Opportunities

The Psynamo Group are continuing with their Community Mental Health Campaign, run for the last three years with a selection of learning opportunities this Spring. In addition to our children’s and parenting development opportunities, we will also have a series of talks to continue to provide the community with up-to-date research-based and information talks about a variety of topics from eating habits to achieving goals to the neuroscience of ADHD and addictions.

Come to one or all that seems like a fit for your enquiring mind and forward to others you think might be curious – hey, bring a crowd. The more the merrier!

Sign up today, either on our website at www.psynamo.com under our ‘learning’ opportunities, or find these talks and more learning opportunities for the whole family on eventbrite.

All talks are held at the OpenMind learning space at 1302 Car Po Commercial Bldg., 18 Lyndhurst Terrace, Central, HK, 6.30-8pm, $250 per learner.

Please see the listing below and we hope to see you and  learn together soon!
