Joyologist Is On A Mission
She arrived in New Zealand owing $80,000 following the loss of her business and home. She lost her first child, a daughter and has had cancer twice. Her youngest sister has had Aids for almost 24 years. ( A Miracle!!) She had ten car accidents in the first 18 months here and lost her business and her partner of 20 years 18 months later. In that space she experienced a out of depression but chose to write her own prescription ....ANTIZAC! see close of item
3 years ago she tried to bring Madan Kataria out here and was not successful.
She tried to conduct a NZ Humour Conference and was not successful.
Instead of giving up she decided to conduct new Zealands first Humour in Business Awards, ( a not for profit event with any residual going to the NZ Centre for Compassion in Healthcare ) which are now in their third year.

And what has all this got to do with gross domestic wellbeing?
Why was she selected to speak at Armidale University in NSW at Australia's first Humour and Wellness conference ?
And when are the Humour Awards and what are they about ?

She is Pat Armitstead, the worlds first Joyologist and she has a mission to see Joyology Departments in every hospital and a vision that by 2020 we will be experiencing an intimacy revolution. ( Pat says that does not necessarily mean we will be getting into bed with each other, but we will be experiencing new levels of trust especially in the workplace. )
The WHO says that depression is currently world health burden number 2 and will be number 1 by 2020.
