I make sure that I switch off, this means time without my phone, social media and television. I give myself plenty of time to just “be”, without some of the distractions of everyday life. I have a holistic view of managing my mental health. I exercise regularly, I eat wholesome “real” food, and I meditate.
Casey first came across zero2hero when she decided to host a Camp Hero for young carers. She was the Young Carers Program Coordinator at the Independent Living Centre of WA and was seeking an innovative approach to offer respite to young people in a caring role.
During the program, Casey became inspired by the work that zero2hero were doing, and after deciding to start volunteering immediately, she soon took on a part time role as the Programs Coordinator. Casey has eight years experience working with youth and is passionate about empowering young people to see their own potential and follow their passions.
Casey is also a SafeTALK trainer and holds a Bachelor of Arts degree with a double major in Psychology and Youth Work.
I keep mentally healthy by having an awareness of my limits and taking some time out to do something I enjoy when I feel I need to.
