After a series of misdiagnoses, he was finally diagnosed with both Bipolar II and Adult ADHD in 2011.

Using his lived experience, Heath’s focus is on promoting looking after your mental health by making good decisions in regard to drugs, alcohol and other social situations. Heath is currently enrolled with Swinburne University, studying his Graduate Certificate in Social Science (Male Family Violence).
