“Imagine if you had a giant secret and you felt like you couldn’t tell anyone about it. That’s the way some people feel about their mental health condition - it eats a lot of people up inside." - Westmead Hospital mental health ward nursing unit manager Samantha Pozzo
Samantha has been a mental health nurse since graduating in 2011. She genuinely loves her job: "the mental health professionals I work alongside are exceptional, but the patients I have met along the way are the real stars. Their stories and their strength have taught me so much. I’ve learnt that it’s okay to not be okay – more than anything we want people to know that."
