About the episode

Graeme Holdsworth was a hugely successful project manager, responsible for building some of Australia’s most iconic buildings from Melbourne’s Crown to Sydney’s 1 Martin Place. He was renowned for his building and management skills. 

However, under significant stress, he realized his behaviours were starting to change. He yelled at everyone from staff to a client and ended up unemployed and divorced. Eventually, he decided it would be better for everyone if he was no longer around

Today, Graeme speaks of his experience and recovery.  As 80,000 Australians a year attempt or plan suicide and 8 a day tragically take their own lives, he shares the many strategies he has put in place to keep himself alive and happy.
