A huge turning point in Kim Vo’s journey of living with mental illness came when he landed a job.
“I was thrown in the deep end. I had been unemployed for a long time but one of the requirements of Centrelink was to get work. I ended up working at a restaurant where I was forced to interact with people, talk to customers and take orders. It wasn’t the best paying but it gave me purpose and drive and got my mind ticking over again.”
