This is a talk Andy has wanted to give for some time. The idea had been germinating in his head, waiting for the right moment to grow. DFTB17 was it. Since our conference he 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 him to tell him their stories.
It is up to all of us to normalize talking about our own mental health, not stigmatize it.
