Founded by award-winning Canadian counsellor, stand-up comic and author David Granirer, Stand Up For Mental Health teaches stand-up comedy to people who have a mental illness as a way of building confidence and fighting public stigma.

Join David and his troupe of emerging Australian comedians for an evening of inspiration and laughs in this Australian first: WISE Stand up for Mental Health.

David Granirer’s program has been brought to Australia by WISE Employment. David, who himself has depression, has trained a group of people who have a mental illness to develop their own comedy routine, covering the highs and lows of living with everything from schizophrenia to depression, addiction, bi-polar, and post-traumatic stress disorder.

David will headline the performance and MC the evening, with each of his comedians performing their stand-up act. Melbourne comedian and WISE Stand Up for Mental Health Ambassador Steve Bedwell will also make a special guest appearance.

The event promises to be a once in a lifetime experience for the audience members and comedians alike - providing healing power to the comedians and a fresh perspective on mental illness.

Purchase tickets for WISE Stand Up for Mental Health to laugh, learn and participate in comedy for change.

Children under three years of age have free entry, provided they don't occupy a seat.
