For the second year, WISE Employment brings WISE Stand Up to Mental Health (WSMH) to Australia - this time, to Sydney! WISE Stand Up for Mental Health (WSMH) 2014 is a unique stand-up comedy event featuring award-winning Canadian comedian David Granirer. David, an author and counsellor who has depression, is training nine more Australians with mental illness to develop their own stand-up comedy routine on the highs and lows of living with mental illness.
WISE Stand Up for Mental Health aims to provide empowerment to the comedians and a fresh perspective to the audience to help end stigma surrounding mental illness. Australian comedian and WISE Stand Up for Mental Health ambassador Steve Bedwell will make a special appearance, and the comedians from last year's event will perform their comedy acts along with the NSW comedians.
Do you, or someone you know want to participate in WISE Stand Up for Mental Health 2014? Following the success of WISE Stand Up For Mental Health in Melbourne in 2013, we are looking for people who have a mental illness to be part of the first WSMH in New South Wales by volunteering to become a stand-up comedian.
WISE Stand Up for Mental Health (WSMH) 2014 takes place on Thursday 30 October 2014, 7pm at The Sydney Town Hall.
WSMH is part of WISE Employment’s three-year Empowermental campaign to help reduce the stigma of employing people who have a mental illness.
