John Brogden has walked a very public journey of success, failure and redemption.
From 1996 to 2005 John was the Member for Pittwater in the NSW Parliament. In 2002, on his 33rd birthday, John was elected Leader of the Opposition – the youngest person ever to hold the role and lead a major political party in Australia.
From the highs of political leadership, through the lows of a suicide attempt and depression and into the business world, John has experienced the highs, lows and highs of life.
John is a passionate speaker and an outstanding advocate for mental illness. He shares his experiences of depression and suicide with honesty and bravery and challenges the common misunderstandings of living with a mental illness.
John is currently the Chairman of Lifeline Australia, Chairman for the Furlough House Retirement Village and a Director of Australian’s for Mental Health.
