Matt was a keynote speaker at the Frontline Mental Health Conference 2020 in Townsville about his lived experience with Post Traumatic Stress and Depression, addressing the stigma around mental health issues in the emergency services and strategies on how we can all work together to increase awareness and look out for one another.
