Published Work:

Giving Bullies the Shove
Bullying, long associated with immature schoolyard thuggery. But for some young people, the taunting doesn't stop on leaving the schoolyard.

Running on Empty: Eating Disorders
Not many, if any (thanks, Scribe). No one is 100 percent happy with their body all of the time, that's just part of life. But the question is – when does a little hang-up turn into a serious problem?

How Much Did I Win? How Much Did I LOSE!?
My name is Alicia and I'm 19 years old. I work as a youth worker/mentor for a youth health service. I started gambling two and a half years ago with a friend who was already addicted.

You're Not Alone
Growing up with a parent having a mental illness is something that can be really hard. As a young kid, I was full of questions about Mum's illness and why she was different to other mums.

My Illness is Just a Small Part of Me
My name is Wallace Stevenson. At the moment I am working for the national 'Like Minds Like Mine' campaign. You might have seen the 'know me before you judge me' ads on TV which are part of the campaign.
