Chantel’s Brain Date

Chantel is a national youth ambassador for Headspace. What motivates her be a passionate mental health advocate is her own lived experience. Being hospitalised for an eating disorder and anxiety as a young vulnerable woman led Chantel eager to create change in the mental health system. Chantel is now living her life trying to make other people’s recovery journies that little bit easier. Chantel is also a peer support worker for NSW health, a migrant support educator for the Red Cross, teachers aid for high school kids experiencing mental ill health, coordinator for St Vincent de Paul foster children support program, volunteer for The Big Anxiety, and recently started volunteering for White Ribbon Australia. Chantel attributes self care to playing a vital part in her recovery and wanted to share her go-to brain date with you, all the way from Sydney.
