Our host and founder, certified counsellor, Lachlan Samuel, has endured his own battles with depression and attempted suicide, which became the driving factor for creating both the Open Up Group as well as the Open Up Podcast.
He now devotes his time to the Open Up Podcast, Open Up video content, public speaking to raise awareness, and facilitating self awareness & vulnerability workshops.
Lachlan has spoken on behalf of Lifeline WA at their suicide prevention night. He has also been featured on 7NEWS, in The West Australian, The Kalgoorlie Miner, Perth Now & Take5 Magazine, for his views on Mental Health in FIFO.
