This Is My Brave Australia Inc. is a registered charity with the ACNC Donations are tax deductible ABN 28 892 123 669
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.
We believe in the power of community. There’s strength found in people coming together to propel a movement forward.
WHAT WE DO
