Australian comedian and Melbourne WISE Stand Up for Mental Health ambassador Steve Bedwell will make a special appearance at the event.
Why is WISE Employment bringing Stand up for Mental Health to Australia? WISE Stand Up for Mental Health is about comedy for change. It uses the power of comedy to share stories of mental illness, empowering the comedians involved and making a positive impact on those who hear the stories. The comedians’ comedy routines aim to inspire people to rethink the stigmatised views society has towards people who have a mental illness and their capacity for living fulfilling lives.
