We had an open and honest conversation with Liam Twomey (Class of 2011), a paratriathlete representing Australia both nationally and internationally, about mental health. Liam is a Mental Health Ambassador with the Black Dog Institute and regularly speaks to young people about his own experience. Liam provided us with insights into the tools that help him, his advice for those wanting to help their loved ones, and what his own journey has looked like.

This interview was conducted by a team of young Grammarians as part of our inaugural Young Alumni Tell Their Stories Week – a week of content (including a social media takeover) by young alumni for young alumni. This initiative forms part of our broader Young Alumni Ambassador Program (YAAP).
