About Nick Bracks
Nick Bracks is a storyteller who has dedicated his adult life to creating positive conversations around mental health.
Nick’s early career in the fashion and entertainment industries ultimately led him to his ongoing work in mental health awareness. He earned international modelling contracts and made regular appearances on Australian television as a presenter as well as a personality. During his time on Dancing with the Stars, Nick publicly spoke about his experience with depression and anxiety for the first time.
Nick has advocated alongside some of Australia’s, and the world’s, largest mental health-focussed organisations by candidly recounting the mental health issues he has struggled with since age 11, including a particularly difficult period when injury forced an early end to his initial career as a competitive athlete. He has spoken to audiences of 1,000+, personally delivered over 1,000 seminars at schools and corporate events around the world, and presented two TED Talks, one covering how creative and entrepreneurial drive can help combat depression, and another on the growing suicide epidemic.
One of Nick’s creative outlets is acting. He has completed a full-time acting course at Film and Television Studio International, and has several film credits already to his name, including a two-year role on Australian soap, Neighbours, and other Australian productions, along with creating his own content. Acting, along with exercise and meditation, are Nick’s foundations for mental health.
In addition to advocacy and acting, Nick has successfully launched several companies including founding his eponymous men’s underwear label, underBRACKS; a successful restaurant venture; co-founding a nutritional supplements company and founding Move Your Mind. Nick now spends his time advocating for mental health, speaking and interviewing, creating content and acting. His professional life and personal development are perfectly intertwined.
