Geoffrey Ahern - Thriving After Trauma


Geoffrey Ahern is a senior mental health clinician and educator who wants us to open up and start talking about our mental health issues as the first step in recovery. In his words - “Our society is pretty much programmed to create men who are emotionally disabled from a young age and often turn in to mental car wrecks. We are told to be strong and capable, and then criticised for not showing emotion and compassion, traits typically considered (in men) to be weak and pathetic. If you don’t think we’re messed up, have a look at substance abuse rates and suicide rates in this country. Look at who’s in prison and who’s standing before a magistrate having an AVO slapped on them. It is almost always blokes; angry, sad, disheartened, confused and lost blokes.”

Geoff's story of surviving and thriving after childhood sexual abuse is incredibly moving and inspiring and I'm extremely honoured to be trusted with sharing it.

Cheers,

Andrew
