I was both surprised and honoured when told about being selected as a finalist for the Australian Young People's Human Rights medal.
More so, I was deeply humbled to find out the group of inspiring young Australians I was a part of.
Mental health is a fact of life for us all, whether we like it or not. We all have a mind, and therefore a level of mental health.
Our right to health care extends to our mental health.
I'm fortunate to be able to contribute to a much larger movement helping de-stigmatise mental illness, provide insight, and change the social climate surrounding mental health.
