Kerryn Redpath is a passionate drug and alcohol educator, a role that evolved out of her own devastating near life and death trials, many years ago. Her autobiography, ‘Out of the Darkness’, follows her journey from the darkest of depths in her young life, to a world filled with hope. Today, she brings this message of hope and a warning of the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse to the young, by speaking in Secondary Colleges/Schools, TAFES, and with many other interested groups. Kerryn’s presentation is personal, passionate, professional and as she believes, vital in light of the current events in the lives of young people across this country.
