Who suggested that being a parent is easy? Dick Moore, the parent of four often errant children and a headmaster for almost 23 years, embarked upon a mission to discover more about what makes young people tick and what he could or should have done during the challenging times. He has a passion for the mental and emotional health and well being of young people and will be exploring how young people think, why adolescence is an especially vulnerable time and about common issues which can arise when the going gets tough. Finally, he will offer some tongue-in-cheek tips for parenthood.
Dick has spoken at over 350 schools, universities, businesses and conferences both in the UK and overseas. He is an instructor for Mental Health First Aid, a trainer for the Charlie Waller Memorial Trust and has attended an ASIST course in suicide intervention. He gave a TEDx talk in April 2015 and a Head Talk in 2018. He has also appeared on BBC Breakfast, BBC Radio 5 Live, various local BBC radio stations and ITN News with Mary Nightingale.
