Robbie is a proud young Gunai/Kurnai Monaro man who has struggled with anxiety and depression.

Robbie worked hard to identify his needs and, in collaboration with his worker, developed an action plan to deal with his mental, physical and emotional health whilst reconnecting to his culture.

Robbie’s recovery goal was to work in an Aboriginal organisation, he never ever thought that he would reach that goal.

Having made significant changes in his life with the support of his worker Robbie is now living his dream. He has just secured employment as a “Koori Education Support Officer”. He says that for the first time in a long time is feeling strong, proud and able to lead a productive life and contribute to closing the gap.
