Emily did her first mental health hospital gig in Australia yesterday when she performed for young people and staff on the adolescent mental health ward of Queensland Children’s Hospital in Brisbane. Together with her husband Christian Dunham on double bass, Emily sang some of her songs and talked about her own story of mental illness and recovery.
