Sleep and ‘Suicide’

HI my name is Dr Jim Skivalidas and I am a chiropractor in Port Melbourne, I had a life changing event happen to me over 4 years ago, I suffered anxiety, depression and had the thought of ending my life. I was one of the lucky ones that came through this and I am passionate about every MALE having the opportunity to do the same.

Whether you are struggling with forming an identity for yourself, pressures of earning sufficient income in your business to your own personal health problems. Increasing your awareness of this major problem that is now in epidemic form in Australia and being able to spot it out in the community is a key driver to reducing this.
