Last night was the launch of my book 'mum, i wish i was dead - the story of a teenager who conquered depression'.
Over 200 people came and listened, laughed and cried. I don't have the words to thank everyone enough for coming and supporting me. It is truly humbling to know how many people care about such an important topic.
A special thank you is needed to Larry Emdur for being the MC, Aviva Lowy for sharing the experience of writing the book with me, and Professor Garry Walter for providing his professional expertise in mental health.
Depression and Mental Health can be a hard topic of conversation, but we have a moral and social responsibility to better understand this.
"People shouldn't be afraid to speak about this, they should be afraid of what not speaking about this leads to."
