Well regarded for her ethical and empathetic journalism when broaching sensitive topics, Jas Rawlinson is a Brisbane-based author, freelance journalist and mental health advocate who is passionate about changing her community through the power of words.
A strong activist for social justice, Jas was one of Pink Cross’s first supporters. In 2013 she lovingly crafted an article about our CEO Geneviève’s prostitution story.
She is also the Co-Founder of Brisbane’s first Domestic Violence Memorial, and in 2017 released a collection of inspiring Australian memoirs titled: Reasons to Live One More Day, Every Day: Stories of triumph from Australians who refused to give in to darkness.’ Including stories from everyday Australians, as well as well-known figures such as L-FRESH The LION, Michael Crossland, and Nicole Gibson, the book aims to reduce suicide rates, break down the stigma surrounding mental health, and provide readers with hope and comfort through their dark times. What a powerful book!
Don’t take just our word for it though! Recent reviews have also raved about the importance of such literature, with Dion Jensen (international speaker and founder of Success for Soldiers) describing the book as “Powerful…superbly disguised…a critical component in overcoming the darkness,” and best selling author Michael Crossland stating powerfully that “Everyone needs to read this book”.
