‘Leaning In’ to your Mental Health

Published October 08, 2018 Views: 1015

To mark World Mental Health Day, we speak with Michael Morrison, founder of The Black Light Principle and mental wellness coach and consultant.

Michael is a former Advertising executive who has also struggled with mental health for most of his life. Before starting The Black Light Principle, Michael would spend his days flying around the world, pitching ideas and negotiating million-dollar deals with some of the world’s biggest brands.

But by night he was wracked with depression and would often spend his time walking around glamorous foreign cities feeling morbid and dreadful. He masked his condition, and realised it was an deeply troubling and exhausting way to live.

Michael left advertising to start The Black Light Principle, a platform for him to speak and consult about mental wellness in the workplace, and has become one of Australia’s leading authorities on the lived experience of mental illness.
