I first attended the Bluebird support group in 2014 after experiencing depression and anxiety for around 10 years following a workplace injury and subsequent issues with chronic pain. I have learned over the years to manage my mental health issues using pain management techniques, counselling and medication, but found that attending the support group provided me with a safe place to discuss my experiences without fear of judgement. I have continued to learn from attending the group and the organised activities, and feel like I have contributed to helping other people through the group discussions. I hope that as an ambassador for Bluebird I can contribute to the group continuing to provide support to people like myself.
