Kon Karapanagiotidis - Asylum Seeker Resource Centre

Kon Karapanagiotidis OAM is the CEO and founder of the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre. Kon is proudly Greek, growing up in a working class family in a small country town in Victoria. Kon's personal experience of racism and witnessing the exploitation of his parents in factories, as well as his grandparents' experience as refugees who fled the Pontian genocide in Anatolia, planted the seeds for his passion for human rights. Inspired by the struggles of his parents and his own childhood experiences of racism, Kon founded the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre (ASRC) at 28. Then a TAFE teacher, Kon discovered that people seeking asylum were living in the community with no basic support. This led to the creation of a student-run and community funded food bank, launched from a tiny shop in Footscray with only a few boxes of food.

Mark Thomas - The Code 9 Foundation

Mark is a 22 year police veteran who was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder, depression and anxiety in February 2013. His triggering incident occurred in April 2003 and through a combination of being naïve to mental health and having no mental health education, did not heed the warning signs until it was too late. Mark felt extremely alone in his early stages of recovery and to counter this, he set up a support group, called Code 9, for emergency services members who are suffering from PTSD to ensure that no member feels alone in their PTSD journey. Code 9 assists members, among others, in online and in person peer to peer support, advice on recovery techniques, the WorkCover process and makes referrals where required. Code 9 is now registered as a charity with the aim of suicide prevention, raising funds to sponsor assistance dogs and supporting his colleagues going through hard times.

As his dad was a bank manager he schooled in several locations across country Victoria: Mildura, Nhill, Swan Hill and Wangaratta before settling in Cobram for most of his high school years. At the end of year 12 he had no idea what he wanted to do with himself so he worked at the local dairy factory for 18 months, saving money before taking two years off to backpack around the UK and Europe. During this time he met an Irish girl and after six months back home working with his dad he headed back over to Ireland for 18 months. During this time he completed a diploma of journalism by night course, a qualification he wouldn't use for close to 10 years. He then settled in Melbourne. After spending most of his 20s and early 30s in "party mode" and doing very unstimulating finance work, he went back to school, professional writing and editing at RMIT. T...
