Brent Williams is a community lawyer developing resources to help vulnerable people.
Two very different people but for both, their world closed in on them. Both have travelled through dark times and have written and spoken about their journey.They contribute to a growing conversation about mental health in New Zealand, a conversation that is bringing the mental health epidemic out of the shadows.
Ultimately a journey of redemption, growth and hope, that could provide an invaluable lifeline to those experiencing depression, and those at a loss to understand what their loved ones are going through. Dr Ben Beaglehole on Brent Williams’ OUT OF THE WOODS.
