Youth

In this episode of It’s a Mind Field! We’re focusing on youth and some of the challenges that young people have faced in the past and still deal with today.

Our expert interview is with 2010’s Australian of the Year, Professor Pat McGorry. Pat is a psychiatrist known world-wide for his development of early intervention and youth mental health services and for mental health innovation, advocacy, and reform. Leon speaks to him about the difficulties navigated by young people and mental illness, as well as some of the wins we’ve seen today.

Caz convenes Club Mind with Bree, Jarod and John, a trio with lived experience of mental illness commenting on Pat’s interview and reflecting on how mental health struggles affected their own lives.

Samuel Leighton-Dore is a writer, screenwriter, director and visual artist based on the Gold Coast, where he lives with his production designer husband and two cats. Chris speak with him about changing his relationship with alcohol, and the unique efforts it presents.
