Introducing Anita Flynn our newly appointed Activities Coordinator

Hi all,

Anita Flynn

Thank you all for welcoming me into the Recovery Rocks community, I feel excited about being included into this community and I would love to give some of the skills and knowledge I have gained over the years. I am really looking forward to getting to know other members. I believe combining all our skills and being open to new ones will make our community vibrant where we all can grow and develop.

I would just like to give you all a brief introduction as to who I am and how I have become who I am:

I grew up in Papua New Guinea, my father was an engineering missionary building boats and airstrips. Dad taught me early in life if you want something bad enough, with determination and hard work, anything is possible.

After high school I did an apprenticeship and became a chef. The sky was the limit for me. I moved to London where I met my future husband. We were engaged to be married, returning to Australia we had dreams of developing our own restaurant. When driving to Melbourne we were involved in a major accident and who I was and what I was disappeared in the blink of an eye. I suffered severe brain trauma, remaining in a coma for weeks.

Grief and loss was the story of my new existence, I had lost who I was….

This turned in major depression and I self medicated with alcohol…. life was not worth living…

After many years I rediscovered my faith in God and together we have walked my recovery journey.  I married and have two sons who are adults now. I did return to cooking for a number of years to finance my study. I completed a degree in Counselling. I have been employed by Richmond Wellbeing as a Recovery Worker for 8 years. During this time I studied a post grad, in Mental Health Counselling and currently studying for Chaplaincy.

In the last 8 years working in mental health I have met so many very special people and together we walked a path of recovery, though ups and downs.  I am so looking forward to contributing now to RRCi and together we can realize how awesome recovery is, Recovery Rocks!
