EP.23 Michael Weston Lived Experience Motivational Speaker and Mental Health Advocate on How Stress Nearly Killed Him

Sometimes life sweeps us up. We’re too busy thinking about work responsibilities, or other duties, and we forget to appreciate the simple things in life. It’s a common story.

But for Michael Weston, who had a 20-year career in mining, this form of living nearly killed him.

On the latest episode of Full Production, Michael and I had the chance to chat about his stress-induced incident that left him unconscious and not breathing on the front of his driveway.

It’s a harrowing story, but one that has an important message behind it. You can’t afford to miss this one.

We also chat about:

  • The physical and mental symptoms Michael had prior to his accident
  • Why miners need to be having regular conversations with their families
  • How Michael found purpose after his accident
  • The importance of reaching out for help when things get tough
  • The warning signs that can present themselves when you’re too stressed
  • Why you should always listen to your gut
  • How some cultural traits in the mining community can keep us from seeking the help we need
  • How to find good mental health care in Australia
