#MenStartTalking - Lance Burdett

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:08 pm on 1 June 2016

Men's Health Month kicked off today, with a breakfast at the Auckland Museum, to talk about how much or how little, men talk about their health. It was a fundraiser for the Men's Health Trust New Zealand, and one of the speakers was Lance Burdett - who was the national advisor for New Zealand Police Crisis Negotiation Teams.

He specialised in suicide intervention, on predicting violent behaviour, and on managing high-risk incidents as a negotiation instructor.

And he suffered burn-out, from having a high stress high stakes job.
