Queensland Mental Health Ambassador
Lisbeth ‘Libby’ Trickett has one of the most recognisable smiles in Australia, but at various times in her life it has masked unbearable pain; pain which has no visible scars.
Like so many Queenslanders, the former darling of Australian swimming has experienced mental health issues first-hand, suffering depression after she stepped away from the pool in 2010.
Today she’s sharing her experiences and shedding light on the issue by becoming a Queensland Government ambassador for mental health in the workplace.
She joins other high profile sports stars Shane Webcke and Trevor Gillmeister promoting work health and safety to Queenslanders.
Trickett will share her own painful experience as she works with industry and the community to highlight the importance of mental health at work.
