Understanding COPMI and yourself

Children Of Parents with a Mental Illness, COPMI, are growing up under very special circumstances.

COPMI and specialists need to understand the conditions as well as the burden and needs alike that derive from these circumstances.

I will deliver an authentic insight to these issues. You will gain a deeper understanding of COPMI therefore.

At the top of 2024, I’ll be taking part as a speaker in the 2024 Trauma Super Conference, alongside 70+ of the world’s foremost trauma experts, including Gabor Maté, Peter Levine, and so many others.

In my talk with Meagen on Day 4 (Thursday, February, 1st) I’ll be speaking on “Children of Parents with Mental Illness“ about my experience on

  • How stress impacts childhood development
  • Why self-identity can be a challenge for children of parents with mental illness
  • How adults can support and protect COPMI

If you know or suspect that you or a loved one suffers from trauma, or if you’d just like to improve your overall resilience and wellbeing, please take advantage of this opportunity.

I would personally love to see you there, and I can’t think of anyone who wouldn’t benefit from this wisdom.
