Giving a Voice to the Elephant in the Room – Kimberley Lennon
The professionals agree: it is healthy to talk about mental health and mental illness. The message is slowly getting through to the millions of people who live with a mental health condition, but sometimes it’s the messenger that makes all the difference. On today's interview, Queensland Program Coordinator for Batyr, Kimberley Lennon, talks about finding the perfect messenger to reach young people:
What is Batyr and what it is doing differently to break down stigma surrounding mental illness.
Why it’s particularly important to facilitate young people to open up about mental health.
What a Kazakhstani elephant has to do with all this.
