Panorama 67

Issue #67 March 2018

People share their stories of mental health recovery in work and life.


Founded in 1996 in one of Flourish Australia’s predecessor organisations (PRA), Panorama has grown to become a lifestyle magazine dedicated to informing and encouraging the recovery journey of readers.

Panorama is written, designed and produced almost entirely by people with a lived experience of mental health issues.
