REGIONAL Victorian Denielle Campbell will bravely share her battle with mental illness in a campaign rolled out in Ballarat this week. SANE Australia is tapping into 155 communities in a bid to improve social connection and mental health outcomes.
Denielle said her life looked idyllic from the outside but depression after her father’s suicide had felt like she was being “sucked down to the bottom of the ocean”.
As the mental health sector continues to face funding uncertainty, SANE Australia is encouraging people to visit the SANE Online Forums to get the help. Denielle said mental health was complex but connecting with others was crucial to support. SANE helpline: 1800 187 263. Online: sane.org or saneforums.org
