Invincible Summer

Invincible Summer is a film raising awareness about depression and anxiety in an artistic and real way.

James Freemantle, star and producer says “There was a long battle. I lost a cousin and friends to depression, and was desperate to be well. So with Simon, Pete, Lawrence ‘Goblin’ Mooney and other generous mates made ‘Invincible Summer’. We won a trophy. Things got better. And it helped people.”

James Freemantle speaks openly about depression and anxiety. Through a number of other videos and interviews, he has encouraged rural communities to stay connected and be conscious of how the isolation of farming can impact on wellbeing. He also offers hope to anyone living with depression.

It’s great to see someone speaking out and so honestly about depression and anxiety.

 

James is also a big supporter of

R U OK?Day is a national day of action on the second Thursday of September (13 September 2012), dedicated to inspiring all people of all backgrounds to ask each other ‘Are you ok?’

In October 2012, I will climb Machu Pichu for depression and anxiety awareness. The Peru Challenge 2012 will run from October 20-31 and raise much needed funds for Black Dog Institute for the research and awareness of mood disorders. This is a cause close to my heart and I’m doing it honour of my Grandma who lived with depression most her life and also the many friends and other family members who live with this mood disorder.
