Beyond Blue Keynote Speaker For Court Services Victoria

8 Feb 2019 - Category : Article

In 2018 I was approached to speak to Courts Services Victoria during Men’s Health Week.

Specifically, I was asked to outline my experience with mental health issues. The aim of the presentation was to help employees better understand conditions like depression and anxiety, and, crucially, what the warning signs are. CSV had intentionally targeted a male audience as a result of research that shows men are less likely to seek help when confronted with a mental health issue than women.

At the conclusion of the presentation, I fielded a number of questions from the audience, hoping to better understand what they, or a family member, friend or colleague, may be confronted with when dealing with a mental health issue, as well as the best course of action in treating the condition.

The feedback was overwhelmingly positive, and a powerful reminder talking about conditions like anxiety and depression is a key platform to addressing the growing number of mental health issues in society.

Just let them in. One family. A family. So unnecessary. So heartless. https://twitter.com/hometobilo/status/1288337316990185472

Twenty-six Victorians under the age of 40 are currently in hospital with coronavirus.

Five are in intensive care. No idea when – or if – they'll make it home.

To anyone who still thinks this only affects older people:

It doesn't.
