Living Library aims to help the community understand the lived experience of mental illness, tackle stigma and normalise getting help.

At Living Library events instead of borrowing a book, a story is borrowed through a speaker. Speakers talk to and take questions from an audience about their connection to mental health and wellbeing. This could be the lived experience of mental illness, being a carer for family members with mental illness or professional expertise in the mental health sector.

The Living Library will be streamed on Facebook LIVE via the SWS Wellbeing Facebook page on the following dates:

To watch:
