Becoming the youngest ever leader of a state or federal Liberal Party was always going to lead to a plethora of opportunities throughout his life, but even John Brogden would tell you that he wouldn’t have imagined where he finds himself today.
Following a fall from grace that led him to seriously contemplate suicide in 2005, John has turned the ship around and now advocates for depression, suicide prevention, and mental health from the highest perch in the land, as chair of the National Lifeline Board for which he was made a Member of the Order of Australia for his services to the community in 2014. John optimises his role to advocate for continual support, research and funding into spaces of mental health and in particular suicide prevention.
In this episode of Manage What Matters, John talks about the suicide rate and how men are struggling at all ages. John also talks about his strategies to cope with his personal mental health challenges and urges men to seek professional help if they are not coping.
We thank John sincerely for being part of the #managewhatmatters initiative
