Just as music can provide a soundtrack for our lives, storytelling weaves our experiences, myths cultural identity into a narrative that teaches, heals and entertains.
With 1 in 4 Australians experiencing mental health issues every year, Recovery Stories are indeed the stories of ourselves, our families our communities.
WAAMH's Recovery Stories Training program aims to use the power of storytelling to raise awareness of mental health issues, bust some stigma and promote the ultimate message that recovery happens.
This intimate uplifting performance showcases the courage, humour, tragedy and triumph of those who journey with mental health issues. This event may feature confronting content however the focus of the event is on recovery, resilience and strength, and will be an uplifting event.
