KEYNOTE SPEAKER - GLENN MITCHELL
FORMER ABC TV/RADIO LEADING SPORTS BROADCASTER
For more than two decades, Glenn lived a life that many envied. As a sports commentator, he travelled the world covering elite level sport including numerous Olympic and Commonwealth Games, and called over 190 international cricket matches. Back home he commentated more than 900 AFL and WAFL games as well as a myriad of other sports and was the host of the iconic Saturday SportsTalk.
But through all this, Glenn's mental health suffered. He spent years on a complex journey of self-analysis and various medications as he endeavoured to overcome his illness. Despite making progress, Glenn descended into one of the blackest periods of his life with resulted in him resigning his position with ABC and making an attempt on his own life.
Glenn's inspirational tale of fighting his way back from the brink of despair is one of hope, poignancy and humour, with an ultimate goal of encouraging everyone whose life has been affected by mental illness that help is at hand.
