Zachary Phillips is an Australian born writer, podcaster, vlogger, school teacher, mental health advocate, motivational speaker and martial artist. He uses these platforms to promote mental health awareness, personal development and self-discovery.
Coming from a troubled past, he began writing as a form of therapy. After finding that sharing his story helped others to move on and heal, he decided to release his first book "Under The Influence - Reclaiming My Childhood" to the public. It provides a personal and brutally honest account of the destructive dynamic that a drug affected and mentally ill father can have on his child.
His second book "How To Get Your Sh!t Together" is a synthesis of all of the different tips, tricks, systems, habits and ideas that he uses to overcome anxiety, defeat depression, move on from trauma, get organised, find meaning and follow dreams.
"I hope that my work will help to reduce the stigma around mental illness and provide some guidance to those facing similar circumstances."
