Real stories from
the Gold Coast

  • Nikki Webber Allen is a well-educated, highly accomplished, Emmy Award-winning Black American woman who was diagnosed with generalised anxiety and depression. When she finally accepted her diagnosis, she still refused to tell anyone about it. Nikki was too ashamed, feeling that with her privileged life, loving family and successful career, she didn’t have the right to be depressed. A family tragedy brought Nikki’s world crashing down, but proved to be the catalyst for her to find her voice to speak out against stigma.

  • Hannah likes hanging out, going to the movies, and playing Cards Against Humanity. Hannah also has schizophrenia, and admits when she was diagnosed, she didn’t know much about it except for the negative stereotypes. With SANE, Hannah is working to raise awareness of this misunderstood illness and stop the stigma and harmful labelling which surrounds it.

  • When Kristy was experiencing anxiety, depression and PTSD, and her life was being turned upside-down, a Samsung tablet was the catalyst in her recovery journey. The device, along with the encouragement of PIR staff, enabled Kristy to reignite her creative self, discover ways to slow her “super anxious fast overthinking brain” and find her voice again.
