545840_10150825024908461_2096143760_nThis month Matt will be sharing the up’s and (mostly) downs of his Major Depressive Disorder.  He was first diagnosed when he was 19 and so has been living with his illness for over a decade.  He’ll talk about symptoms, medications, psychotherapy and family reactions from his personal experience and also as a youth worker at a mental health service.  Matt hopes that by “coming out” about his mental illness will help break down some of the stigma that many people experience living with a mental illness.

Event Location: Victorian AIDS Council Building, 6 Claremont Street, South Yarra. The entrance is at the side of the building. Just ring the door bell and we will come and let you in. You are welcome to join us afterwards at La Porchetta, Toorak Rd South Yarra.

7.15pm for a 7.30pm start. For more information or any queries please email [email protected] or call Linda on 0430045585
