I used to get up on stages to bust out covers of Cold Chisel songs. Now I get my kicks sharing insights, writing articles and facilitating workshops on mental health and psychology.
Who says the road to well-being must be paved with clinical jargon and boring self-care sermons? I’m keen to make mental health info accessible, relevant and a little bit rock’n’roll.
