The personal experiences of young people living with chronic illness.
If you have been diagnosed with a chronic illness, or if you are a friend or teacher of someone recently diagnosed, personal stories can provide valuable information and reassurance. They can help you understand what to expect and how others have coped.
The RealTime Health 'Speaking from Experience' video clips on this site offer first-hand accounts from young people living with a chronic illness, or caring for someone with a chronic illness. These first-hand accounts reveal the day to day challenges others have faced, and give insights into the coping strategies they have used.
Whether you are a young person with chronic illness, a friend or a teacher, you will find the personal stories shared by dozens of young Australians on this resource moving and inspiring.
