Speaking out about mental health

This week I had the privilege of speaking to a group of year eleven boys at a secondary school in Sydney about my mental health story and to help raise awareness about common conditions such as depression. Here is a condensed version of the presentation I gave in slide format. By clicking on the link below (directly above the slideshow) it is viewable with the accompanying notes which outline what I was talking about during each slide.

These were my concluding remarks: "What my story does show is that no matter how bad things get, you can overcome the obstacles that come with mental illness. The good news is that how you feel when times are hard is not how you will always feel. Sometimes the darkest hour of the night is the one just before the dawn."
