Ballarat dad, farmer and health advocate Nick Shady says his platforms are very different to the Liberals - the party he stood for preselection for ahead of the 2016 Federal election.

The 48-year-old says we need to be prepared for climate change, should ban coal and gas exports, stop the Adani coal project, halt the casualization of the workforce, reduce the number of gaming machines and spend more on mental health.

Nick says his time as a telephone counsellor for a national hotline made him aware of the scale of mental health issues in our community.
