Will Hill’s Yarn - Rock Bottom

Our Way

Added by Desert Pea Media

Description Part of the 'Break It Down: Community Conversations Around Mental Health' project 2017/2018. (DPM/PHN WNSW)
Depression is one of the most debilitating illnesses around, and no one understands this more than Will Hill. Due to racism at school, and a consequent disconnect from culture, Will found himself in a suffocating “dark hole” of poor mental health. When things were at their absolute worst, Will had a choice. Thankfully, he made the right one, and what we are left with is a remarkable story of courage and strength. Will reached out to his elders and found power in the culture that makes him who he is. Now, he has the honour of teaching students about the very thing that saved him, and give them the strong foundation to get through their lives.
