Share These Stories: Lived experience accounts of recovery & hope

We know that many community members face mental health challenges during their lifetime. The impact of these challenges can vary greatly but many will experience being mentally unwell themselves or know someone with a mental health challenge.

Launching this month, the latest publication from headspace Ballarat and Western Victoria Primary Health Network will help individuals to delay actions, re-direct unhelpful thoughts and cope better with mental health challenges. The anthology of lived experience stories from locals in the Central Highlands region is designed to promote seeking support and to help individuals respond to a person who might be at risk of suicide.

Share These Stories gives an incredible insight into the lives of individuals who have encountered mental health challenges of all kinds. Read first-hand accounts that offer hope to those starting on their recovery journey. Available online or in hard-copy from headspace Ballarat for a voluntary donation.
