Jill Stark was wracked by paralysing anxiety and serious depression. She hit rock bottom, her mental health crisis flaring up in the aftermath of a personal triumph: the success of her debut book. She talks to Paul Barclay about the myth of happiness, what her personal struggles have taught her, and the hard, but rewarding, road she’s travelled, rebuilding her life, and her health. Big Ideas is revisiting this discussion as part of Your Mental Health — an ABC-wide initiative to help us navigate through these unusual and trying times.
