    I would like to attend another conference like this one, I am sorry that I missed out. I have a story to share of my life and from where I have come from. I believe resilience is that what kept me alive, I have lived experiences that I do not wish others to have. I feel that stories are a way of expression and hope for others, no two stories are the same. We may come from many backgrounds but we all have to end up in the same place. My Grandfather always stood up for his rights, and as family members we also were taught to stand up for our rights for what we believed in. I myself came from a generation where past events such as The Stolen Generation impacted upon my parents lives, to this day it still impacts on the way different family members react today. I myself have had my children taken away from me, just because I did not have a home or a job to support my children. Of course it went in favour for the other party who had a job and was living in a house that my children grew up in. That did not stop me from believing that yes I am somebody and I can do all things that I put my mind to. I came from sleeping in a two man tent on the beach to owning my own car and working in a position that I am passionate about. I am studying my Masters in Health majoring in Mental Health. I hope to travel the world and to share my story, my story of hope and resilience. Thank you all for listening.

    Mental Health is not only the mental state of thought patterns but the spiritual, physical and being of a human being. All must be treated fairly and just. There is no room for mistakes of the past we must learn to live now in the future.
