JONNY BENJAMIN MBE - LORRAINE CANDY
Teenagers – The Lost Generation
Venue: Temple Church
15 Sep 2021 04:00 pm
Branded as ‘snowflakes’ with little resilience and even less concentration, teenagers these days get a bad press. But is that fair when, unlike any generation before them, they are faced with the threat of climate disaster, the pressures of a judgemental social media world, and a lost social life and huge education gap as result of the global pandemic? How do we empathise with this confused generation and help to give them confidence in the future? Jonny Benjamin is an award-winning mental health campaigner, film producer, public speaker, writer and vlogger. His book, The Book of Hope, is a collection of stories to inspire recovery and his charity, Beyond, provides mental health support for young people. Former Sunday Times Style magazine editor and podcaster, Lorraine Candy’s book Mum, What’s Wrong with You? is a guide to raising teenage girls.
