Watch highlights of the second WISE Stand Up for Mental Health event in Australia - held on 30 Oct 2014 at Sydney Town Hall.
WISE Stand Up for Mental Health (WSMH) 2014 is a unique stand-up comedy event featuring award-winning Canadian comedian David Granirer. David, an author and counsellor who has depression, is training nine more Australians with mental illness to develop their own stand-up comedy routine on the highs and lows of living with mental illness.
The goal of WISE Stand Up for Mental Health was for the comedians involved to learn a new skill, to experience empowerment by sharing their journey of mental illness in a different way through comedy, gain confidence and have the experience of a lifetime.
The audience had the opportunity to gain unique insight into mental illness - insight that has the power to positively shape their own attitudes and considerations towards employing people with a mental illness.
