HEATH BLACK is a retired AFL footballer who struggled with mental illness throughout his 12 year professional career.  Originally from Victoria, he started as a 17 year old in 1997 with the Fremantle Dockers, moving to St Kilda for a stint and finishing his career at the Dockers in late 2008.  Towards the end of his football career he had a series of public misdemeanors which marred the solid reputation he had built over his career.  Spiraling out of control, he realised the full extent of his mental health issues in 2009, following the failure of his marriage, lost job opportunities, several arrests and a growing dependence on alcohol.  He was finally diagnosed with Bipolar II and ADHD type 6.  Heath is now getting his life back on track and has decided to use his profile and experience to try and help others who may suffer from Bipolar, ADHD or other related mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety, isolation and alcoholism.  

Tickets are limited and will be available to registered carers plus one guest as a first in, first offered basis.  Respite is also available upon request and subject to approval.
