Monday to Friday, 9am - 3pm
12 videos to inspire and inform in under 3 minutes
A series of inspirational and thought provoking Voicebox videos on personal experiences of living with mental illness are now available for viewing online and utilising for public awareness raising and advocacy.
People with a lived experience of mental health issues shared their stories and passion for change through the ground breaking digital mental health project, Voicebox 2, developed by Gold Coast Partners in Recovery and Human Ventures in partnership with FSG Australia.
The short digital stories include insights into what it is like to live with a mental illness, be the carer of children diagnosed with autism, the importance of support and the journey of recovery. Although issues of bullying, drugs, homelessness and child abuse are also highlighted, the overarching theme is of hope and increasing understanding about mental health.
Each video (between 1-3 minutes long) recognises that people are not alone, reduces stigma and encourages people to talk about their situation and seek support. We encourage all to use these videos as an educational tool, for individuals, their families, carers and health professionals.
