Belinda and Chris’s Story

Belinda and Chris Story

Hi! We're Belinda and Chris, and we met in 2007 when we were both patients in an acute psychiatric ward.

We wanted to participate in this project to raise awareness of assistance available for people experiencing depression and other mental illnesses, and to encourage people to seek help.

Chris is a retired navy officer and Belinda was heading towards a career in community music until she became too ill to continue on that path.

Since our chance meeting, we've worked together on ways to control our depression, through medication, diet, exercise, social activities, work choices etc. Life is looking up!
