The question has always been how to get Freud off the couch

Psych.School. understands that prevention is better than cure. In the field of mental health, prevention is education and education is prevention - even for those of us who feel well. Psych.School. aims to bring psychological understanding and strategies to the community through face-to-face workshops and talks, online wellbeing programs, and social media connection.
Along with a team of qualified mental health professionals, Psych.School founder and clinical psychologist Dr. Dave Demmer aims to improve mental health wellbeing for all. We are about lessons, not therapy. We believe that the more of us who understand psychological concepts and speak the psychological language – the better all of our mental wellbeing can become.
Psych.School. online programs are designed to support the mental wellbeing of all, and are developed based on valid and reliable psychological science and research.
At Psych.School.. we do not believe in 'on demand' programs,. We know that change alone is not easy. Therefore, all programs have a specific start date, with weekly class content released each week throughout the program.
Class starts Monday 29 June / FULL
