Jessica Rowe is a news presenter, author, columnist and mother of two girls, Allegra and Giselle. She has been working in the media industry for over 20 years and is passionate about removing the stigma around mental health conditions.
Rowe grew up with a mother who has bipolar disorder: she understands the chaos and heartache that a mental health condition can cause to a family. Jessica wanted to help others by sharing her experiences, and she became a beyondblue Ambassador in 2002. Firstly, she spoke about her mother’s bipolar disorder and after becoming a mother, she also talked about her own experience of postnatal depression. This led to her becoming a Patron for the beyondblue Perinatal Mental Health Program.
