This Is My Brave Australia is dedicated to breaking the stigma surrounding mental illness, one story at a time.
Through the sharing of stories and experiences of those in recovery, we provide a sense of community and hope; and we aim to encourage others to share their stories. We believe that each time one of us shares our story, there's another crack helping to break down the stigma of mental illness. It's time to be brave and bring mental health issues into the spotlight. They've been in the dark too long.
Stories are told with poetry, musical performances, film, and spoken word. These stories are shared through our live stage performances, our blog, and our YouTube channel.
Our live performance shows give members of the community a creative platform to share their stories of a lived experience with mental illness.
Through storytelling, poetry, and song, This Is My Brave Australia Inc. is dedicated to starting a national conversation about mental health.
The This Is My Brave Inc. YouTube channel is another platform used to share people's stories and experiences, including footage from past shows.
