“Jas spoke from the heart at the Lifeline Brisbane Bookfest, bravely sharing her personal story and how she arrived at the decision to write “Reasons to Live”.

Constantly speaking about these hard topics can be difficult but Jas does it with grace, compassion and understanding, allowing people to think and speak about their own struggles and discover how they can access help.”

Jas reached out to the RFDS in 2018 to support an event she was hosting in Cairns. She proved to be genuine, compassionate, and knowledgeable about what it’s like to live with trauma, DV, abuse and depression

Jas’ mental health knowledge has grown significantly in the year that I have known her, and she shares that knowledge in a relatable and empathic manner.

“I recently came to one of your talks in Weipa, and was very much inspired. Your book should be given to grade 11 and 12’s. Had I read your story back then I think I may have dealt with a few situations differently and walked away.”


Finding happiness each day, overcoming trials and holding on to hope. Those are the themes of the impactful message that Jas brings. Whoever comes and listens, no matter what their story is or what their struggle, they will feel inspired and encouraged that they can keep going.  Jas is a great inspiration to this generation.

“I went to the launch of Jas Rawlinson’s second book “Reasons To Live One More Day, Every Day in Melbourne, and found kindness, gentleness and warmth in that space.

“I don’t talk about my stuff (much), and I was feeling a bit fragile. But I am so glad I went along, and I was so happy to have met Jas in person. I would recommend these events to anyone.”
