Mental Health Week is held in October each year in Australia. It aims to spread the word about positive mental wellbeing and to promote seeking support for those who need help.
Our 2018/19 Change Agent, Martin Johnson, is driven by personal experience and a passion for mental health. He used his platform and the week to amplify the voices of young people dealing with mental health issues.
Martin sat down with 7 young Australians to discuss:
- their mental health experiences
- personal challenges
- how they could reduce the stigma.
The result was “Inside Our Minds”, a series of short films letting young people know they are not alone and help is available.
We are delighted that Martin has passed on the reins to other young people to continue this incredible legacy of amplifying young people’s stories about mental health.
