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.

Past speakers:

In 2019, a Living Library video series was produced locally and launched for Mental Health Month as an awareness-raising resource for mental health and wellbeing in South Western Sydney. Borrow a story at the Living Library here.

For all Living Library project updates, follow SWS Wellbeing on Facebook, on Instagram and on Twitter.

The Living Library is funded by Liverpool City Council and South Western Sydney Local Health District in collaboration with local government and non-government organisations.
