Ex-Army Officer, rescue helicopter pilot and mental health ambassador, Kevin Humphreys knows what it’s like to hit rock bottom. For a long time, Kevin kept his post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression and anxiety buried deep. Today, Kevin shares what happens when you hit rock bottom, how he figured it out, and the triggers that made a difference in transforming his life.


Kevin deeply connects with people. His captivating story is heart-felt and resonates with many regardless of age, gender or industry. After one of Kevin’s presentations people experience a tangible difference with how they think and deal with mental illness, both at home and in the workplace.


The strength in Kevin’s presentation is realising that his story is the same as thousands of others. And while collectively, we’re addressing the stigma around mental illness it still requires individual courage and compassion to speak-up, and convert these conversations to the new ‘normal’.


Kevin inspires men and women to have courageous conversations about mental illness whether they be in the boardroom, warehouse or frontline.  

Kevin’s key messages are:


  • Mental illness is normal, manageable and recoverable for most people

  • Mental illness can take you to new heights and successes

  • Even if you don’t know what words to use, just start talking. Even if you don’t know how to respond, just keep listening

A variety of talks are available to suit your audience

Kevin Humphreys speaking in Airbus

“Kevin, thank you. You smashed the stereotype of an individual with a mental illness. Having the courage to speak so openly as our keynote speaker and sharing your first-hand experience was compelling, candid and provocative. Everyone left not just informed, but transformed. You helped us understand that we need to be “doing it better” and that there is hope for recovery, and the small things that we do on a daily basis can make a difference.”

Safety Manager, Airbus Australia Pacific
