Nick speaks frankly and openly about his battle with depression and anxiety, and encourages acceptance and understanding. He highlights the importance of positive connections with family and friends and empathises with feelings of isolation, worthlessness and anxiety that are common among sufferers of mental illness. Nick speaks about finding your passion and purpose in life through self-exploration, and what it takes to make that passions and purpose your reality.

The Speaker

Growing up the eldest son of a prominent politician, Melbourne-based Nick Bracks was already accustomed to the spotlight when he was offered a contract with American Crew in 2009. His profile grew quickly and before long, Nick branched out from modelling to become a prime time television favourite. It was during his acclaimed appearance on Channel Seven’s Dancing with the Stars (according to Nick the most nerve-wracking experience of his life) that he found a way to advocate for the cause closest to his heart: mental health awareness. Drawing from personal experience with depression and anxiety, Nick has gone on to work with organisations such as Headspace, Beyond Blue, En Masse and Movember, speaking to audiences that range from intimate school and youth groups to large media events and corporate gatherings of 1,500+.

At age 28, Nick is loving the new direction his life has taken through advocating for mental health awareness while building on his successful business and entertainment projects. He hopes that now, with a little luck, he’ll never have to dance in front of two million viewers again!
