Samuel Hockey

Mr Hockey is a mental health ambassador with lived experience of mental illness and suicidal thoughts. He currently resides in Sydney, but grew up on the South Coast where he struggled to find the mental health support that he needed in his earlier years.

He currently holds a position as youth representative on the Consumer and Carer Engagement Project Steering Group; member of the Core Community Group of the Digital Mental Health 1 Gateway; and former youth representative on the Black Dog Institute’s CRESP LEC.

"Even the most disadvantaged Australians should be able to lead a 'contributing life,' whatever that means for them and this simple goal will be our touchstone and yardstick."

Chair Prof Allan Fels AO
