Mental Health: Out of the Woods – A Journey out of Depression
Friday, May 4, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Brent Williams was born in Wellington, New Zealand, in 1958. He studied law at Victoria University and then built his career in the community law field, creating services and resources to help vulnerable people – particularly children, young people, and victims of family violence.
In his resource work Brent used comics, re-enactments, and documentaries to tell stories of people asserting their legal rights. However, in his late forties he found he could no longer do this work. It was like he had hit an insurmountable wall. That wall was depression.
Denial, shame, and a misguided belief he had to fight depression on his own made Brent’s situation worse. Not until he really acknowledged that he was ill, and accepted help, could his recovery begin.
Brent will share his journey out of depression with the Society.
