Christopher Shum

Passionately interested in psychology, neuroscience and breaking down complicated psychological theory into easy to understand language. I believe society is moving in the right direction in relation to wanting to understand their minds better but unfortunately, there's plenty of misinformation out there that our organisation is trying to correct. Raising a nation that is well educated on how to take care of their mental health will offer an alternative solution to the current mental health crisis. We should be preventing the problem rather than waiting for it to happen.
I am also a mental health app developer, podcast host and ACT Campaign advocate, which is pushing for mandatory mental health education.
Personal interests include sport, food, travel and film. I'd like to think I have strong cultural awareness as I'm half Irish, half Chinese, while having the fortune of living in countries such as Spain, Canada and Sri Lanka.
