Mental health stigma is real and is stopping us from being there for each other. Thank you, Ben, for sharing your journey with anxiety and doing your bit to break down difficult conversation barriers with your project @The.Naked.Farmer. “Some people say ‘have a teaspoon of cement and get over it’. Like, it is not that easy. And there’s a lot to it that you don’t understand if you haven’t been through it,” Ben Brooksby, The Naked Farmer
We made this video to start important conversations about mental health and #ReduceStigma. Help us spread the word by sharing this video now – every share makes a difference!
Ben’s profile is part of a bigger project called The Common Thread, a web series in which Australians from all walks of life share their journeys with mental health the tools and tactics that have supported their recovery. Now streaming on our Youtube video channel.
