Mental Health Week is held in October each year in Australia, with the aim to spread the word about positive mental wellbeing and promote seeking support if you need help.
Our 2018/19 Change Agent, Martin Johnson, used his platform and this important week to amplify the voices of young people dealing with mental health issues.
Driven by personal experience and a passion around mental health, Martin originally sat down with seven young Australians to discuss their mental health experiences, personal challenges and how they could reduce the stigma.
‘Inside Our Minds’, a series of short films, was born to ultimately let other young people know they aren’t alone and there is help out there for them. We are pleased to see that over the years Martin has passed on the reins to other Young People to continue this incredible legacy of storytelling and amplifying the voice of young people about Mental Health.
