Erin Stewart's story

We first met Erin Stewart at the NSW Youth Week Minding Our Mental Health Forum, held at Parliament house on Tuesday 1 April. Following the event Erin wrote an article for Ramp Up, the ABC's online destination for news, discussion, debate and humour for everyone in Australia's disability communities.

We caught up with Erin this week to talk about her time at the forum and her thoughts on youth mental health.

Karen's story

Karen Hamilton hopes to create cultural change and empower young people to take action against cyber bullying through the REELise Film Festival.

Initially a corporate lawyer, Karen became Festival Director of REELise after being deeply affected by a youth suicide that occurred near her home.

What started as a concept raised at a community forum, REELise has grown into a movement reaching children in more than 3,000 homes across the East Sydney community.
