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.
