Turning Pain Into Purpose with Mitch McPherson
I chose podcasting as a legacy to my brother, Sam’s life because they’re timeless, educational resources on mental health and mindfuless that will help the lives of others.
They will also help families gain a more compassionate understanding and a deeper insight into how better to support those they love.
Mitch McPherson’s story has given me much hope. Not only is he the founder of the incredible organisation Stay ChatTY, he’s also just released his own book, “Behind the Smile”. Mitch is the 2017 Tasmanian Young Australian of the Year and he has spoken to over 600 events which include school groups, workplaces and sporting clubs and is dedicated to spreading the message that nothing is so bad that you can’t talk about it.
Mitch’s vision is that SPEAK UP! Stay ChatTY will become a national charity, with a focus on delivering programs in schools and sporting clubs around Australia to increase awareness and remove the stigma surrounding mental health.
It has been a solace for me to capture the heartfelt stories of so many, but especially this one.
It’s inspiring, uplifting, and I’m thrilled to be able to share it.
Thanks to Mitch for your beautiful heart. The world needs your work.
