Guest speaker

Hear from beyondblue ambassadors and 2017 My Kitchen Rules contestants, Mark Virgona and Chris Jongebloed.

Mark and Chris are best friends who met after high school and share a love of food and AFL footy. They have both travelled overseas together and teamed up for the TV show, My Kitchen Rules in 2017.

Mark and Chris are volunteer speakers for beyondblue, a national organisation that works to raise awareness about anxiety and depression, reduce the associated stigma and encourage people to get help.


Mark became a beyondblue speaker after experiencing depression a couple of years ago and does not want others to feel the pain he suffered. He wants to make a difference in society and share his experience that it is ok to speak up and the importance that mateship has on beating the illness.


Chris became a beyondblue speaker because he has seen the impact of how it can help being open and talking about anxiety and depression with his best mate Mark and wants to encourage others in similar situations to do the same.
