#009 Ft. Pheobe Ho – TEDxUWA Speaker, Mental Health ‘Lived Experience’ Educator & UWA Honors Student

Our next guest is Pheobe Ho. A recent TEDxUWA speaker, headspace mental health advocate & educator & UWA Student Guild Welfare Officer, Pheobe joins me to speak about her journey with mental health, her road to recovery, & the importance of sharing stories of lived-experience for those currently experiencing difficulty. Balancing this load while also completing her honours degree in Psychology, is no small task, so it is my pleasure to welcome Phoebe to The Campus Experience.

Top Quotes:

“My turning point for me was when I heard other speakers talk about their experience with mental health & although they’d hit rock bottom they came out the other side in one piece.” 

“Recovery is possible… keep going.”

“Someone had been through what I had been through & was able to tell me that it was possible.”

“[Don’t] let your past experience dictate what you can achieve in the future. You have your own power to rewrite your story, and who you are, in the future. So don’t let that restrict you in terms of recovery and becoming a better version of yourself.”
