VOICES FOR CHANGE, BRISBANE
Lived Experience Speakers - Mental Health Recovery
My name is Jim. I am artistic, talented and have a passion for public speaking. Now in my 40's, I first became unwell at age 14 starting with depression and anxiety, worry and hopelessness. At 18 I had my first serious episode that turned my whole upside-down. Times were tough and tormenting indeed. It took me 25 years to get a little bit better. I would like to tell you more of my recovery journey in the near future, and I would like to meet you all soon. Through all of this I retain a positive outlook on life and believe that, above all else, life is for living!
