Tom Derickx — musician, model, ex-AFL player and U R OK ambassador

For episode 25 of Offline, host Alison Rice sat down with musician, model, ex-AFL player and ambassador for suicide prevention charity, U R OK, Tom Derickx. Offline exists as an exploration of self and as we journey deeper, it’s important to show both the light and the shade. For some, our sense of self is veiled by anxiety and for others, it’s the dark night of depression. In this episode and for the first time, Tom bravely shares the thing he’s held closest to him — his battle with both.


Alison and Tom hope that for the people listening who are also caring for their mental health, or who are a support person or want to find out how to be one, that this honest conversation helps.
