Mental Health at DFTB17

DFTB, T. Mental Health at DFTB17, Don't Forget the Bubbles, 2018. Available at:

This talk was recorded live on the first day at DFTB17 in Brisbane. If you missed out in 2017 then why not book your leave for 2018 now. Tickets are on sale for the pre-conference workshops as well as the conference itself at

This is a talk I’ve wanted to give for some time. The idea had been germinating in my head, waiting for the right moment to grow. DFTB17 was it. Since our conference I was lucky enough to be invited to speak on the topic at the ANZICS Combined SIG meeting and was touched, but not surprised, by the number of people who came up to me to tell me their stories.

It is up to all of us to normalize talking about our own mental health, not stigmatize it.

You can listen to this talk as you walk to work on any device that supports podcasts.

One of our resident doodlers, Grace Leo, has also taken some notes so you don’t have to.

So, sit back and watch my talk.
