What other people say about Stuart Rawlins & Healthy Mind Healthy Future
Teachers are great at delivering curriculum and parents are fantastic at molding students into responsible young men and women. But how do you train a child to respond to those more difficult questions in life, often the things that they simply shouldn't have to deal with but more often than not they have to. That is why our College had Kerrie Atherton from Empower Life Solutions and Stuart Rawlins from Healthy Mind, Healthy Future present a program to our Year 10 and Year 11 students called "What would you do if..."
Kerrie is a counselor with a wide range of experience and who has a personal story of her own that demonstrates how someone can overcome serious life problems. Stuart has worked in the Police Force and has the expertise to address a range of issues and questions that young people have. Kerrie and Stuart presented a range of scenarios to the students and they were presented with the question "What would you do if..." From the feedback we received, the students found the program very helpful and informative.
They were provided with a whole range of strategies to help them think through how they should act when confronted with that social problem that no one else seems to discuss with them. I encourage parents and teachers to find out more about this program as it is extremely helpful to young people today.

"We were extremely privileged to have Stuart Rawlins from 'Healthy Mind Healthy Future' as April's guest speaker at 'Stories of HOPE'.
I have heard many speakers over my time but Stuart Rawlins really moved us all as he shared his very personal journey about a life dedicated to the care of others as a police officer on the Sunshine Coast for many years and as a leading investigator in the Daniel Morcombe case.
People have not stopped talking about Stuart's story and the sensitive way he delivered it. Talking about how he navigated his way through his own journey with PTSD and Mental Health issues Stuart now has a deep passion and enthusiasm to see others healed and now spends time educating, empathising and helping thousands of others who have been suffering in silence.
He has literally brought the stigma of Mental Health and PTSD right out of the box and in doing so is setting others free to also talk about their pain and move into a place of healing themselves.
What was hard in his life is now being used for good as his remarkable journey of recovery continues".

“Stuart has been a friend of mine for about 7 years. He has known me at my lowest of times, and now at my best frame of mind.
His articles on Mental Health hit home time and again. And I realise how even when I thought I'd come through my own anxiety and depression, there was still more sorting to do.
Stuart speaks from personal experience, and has come out the other side with a positive and healthy outlook on life. We don't often think about the traumas inflicted on our emergency services personnel - what they witness day after day in their occupations I can not imagine.
Thank you Stuart for all you are giving back to your and our community. You are a wonderful, caring and selfless human”.
Debbie Norman | Audrey's Kitchen
“Stuart recently delivered an empowered motivational session, delivered in real world language, with some of our young job seekers.
During this time, every single young adult hung off each of Stuart's sentences and actions. It was an amazing experience to witness, and I am certain our job seekers are much better prepared for their future.
Stuart is to be commended for his tirelessness energy, and giving nature”.
