Presenter: David Granirer

Founder, Stand Up For Mental Health

David has presented for NAMI's across the nation. You have to be nuts to take counsellor and stand-up comic David Granirer's Stand Up For Mental Health program where he teaches stand-up comedy to people with mental illness, but the results can be life-changing!  This hilarious presentation is part comedy and part education. David, who himself suffers from depression, looks at how comedy can help fight the stigma around mental illness. Through video clips you'll get to see examples of his comics breaking down barriers by finding the lighter side of their mental health journeys.
