Podcast – Prof. Pat McGorry



 | Episode 


An authentic conversation with Professor Pat McGorry.

Pat McGorry has dedicated much of his professional life to the early intervention of mental health conditions for young Australians. Named as the Australian of the Year and awarded the Order of Australia in 2010, Pat continues to advocate for better services and outcomes for young people living with mental health conditions. In this episode Pat explains to host Wayne Schwass why he believes lives lost to suicide are not valued as much as they should be, why talking to family and friends is not enough, why hope is absolutely vital, how stigma is pure discrimination and why every person needs to fight to get the help they deserve to live a fulfilling life.
