Biographical Info

This is Me Advocacy began with Janine realising that it was okay to tell her mental illness story, and that she could use it to help others. Janine tells her story in her book – This is Me: a Janine Mullin anxiety story.
She encourages everyone to tell their mental illness story to the world. By telling our stories we can bring about understanding and acceptance of mental illness in our society. Janine is passionate about fighting for the rights of people who struggle with mental illness, and raising awareness about the struggles some people face on a daily basis. Janine is available as a public speaker, or can be contacted by ANYBODY who needs advice, or just wants to chat.
