A video portrait of Indigenous artist and Billabong surfer Otis Carey. We are incredibly grateful for Otis sharing his journey with mental health and the tools that have helped him navigate depression.

Our mental health video series ‘The Common Thread’ sees Being Here director Darius Devas travel across Australia to meet young Australians from all walks of life, who open up about their mental ill health and share the tools and tactics that have supported their recovery.
