Episode 12 PukaUp: Kate McLoughlin
In this candid and raw episode, Kate McLoughlin talks about the impact and grief that comes with suicide. Kate lost her then 19-year-old middle son Zach to suicide twenty months ago, a day that changed her life forever. Kate's honesty and candour is both heart breaking and inspiring. A single mum to three young men, Kate talks about her pride in her middle son: his cheeky, infectious personality that meant people gravitated to him, how he had a wonderful support network of friends and family, a good job, new car and a promising future. Kate speaks about the conversations she shared with Zach when two of his friends chose suicide instead of life, how angry he was about their decisions which gave her a level of comfort that suicide wasn't something Zach would ever consider. Tragically, it was a decision Zach chose and by choosing suicide he simply passed the pain and suffering onto family and friends. Kate also explains why she chose to speak about suicide and its devastating effects in front of a large audience at Zach's funeral, how she sees it as a gift and responsibility to talk about suicide with the aim of helping prevent other people from making the same irreversible mistake her fun-loving son made.

Kate McLoughlin is an inspiring, courageous and brave person who continues to work through the grief, pain and loss that accompanies suicide. Kate's refusal to remain quiet on the issue of suicide has and will continue to save lives across the world. This is a compelling, heartfelt and emotional episode.

Today, the 27th November, 2017 would have been Zach's 21st birthday #RIP Zach

Episode 11 PukaUp: Brendan Fevola
Brendan Fevola played 204 AFL games with the Carlton and Brisbane Lions football clubs over a twelve year period. His career included 623 goals, two Coleman Medals, being a three time All Australian and leading goal scorer with the Carlton Football Club for seven consecutive years. In this episode 'Fev' explains why he has no regrets choosing to accept that things happened for a reason and that he needed to go through difficult times to get to where he is today, and why he struggled to open up and tell people what he was going through.

'Fev' talks candidly about how his way of dealing with boredom was to use alcohol and gambling, openly admitting he gambled away an entire year's salary. This larger than life personality still can't explain why he would spend hours reading on-line football forums every night for years looking for approval without recognising the significantly negative impact this was having on his health, wellbeing and importantly his ability to perform as an AFL athlete. A 68 day stay in a mental health facility whilst still being a contracted AFL player with the Brisbane Lions Football Club, going on to win "I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here" and his eventual move to Yarrawonga to play local football were key decisions that helped him change his life. Brendan also speaks about the influence his ex-wife now fiancee, Alex has had on his life.

Osher Günsberg is one of Australia's most recognisable media personalities best known as the host of 'The Bachelor Australia' and 'The Bachelorette Australia'. He has forged a successful media career on both television and radio while living with and managing mental health conditions.

In this episode, Osher speaks candidly about his journey with social anxiety, generalised anxiety and obsessive compulsive disorder. He looks back on the day his brain 'broke' and his experience with psychosis while living in California. This confronting experience was a significant turning point in Osher's life which lead to his sobriety and helped him realise that ultimately his mental health was his responsibility. He accepted that he needed to take medication each day to help manage his health and that finding the right balance between the benefits of medication and the side affects took time. Osher's pragmatic approach towards his on-going management of his mental health is both refreshing and inspiring.
