Rhys Knight is a New Zealand writer and mental health advocate based in Brisbane, Australia. His first novel, 'Little White Helpers' attempted to approach the topics of depression and anxiety in a humorous fashion. Knight used black humour and dark themes to broach taboo subjects such as substance abuse, addiction and, perhaps most notably, stress-induced depression.
Knight was raised in Christchurch, New Zealand. After graduating from St. Andrew's College, he started his career in retail. At the age of 23 he moved to Brisbane, Australia, to advance his career but then suffered a mental breakdown brought on by stress and a genetic predisposition to depression and anxiety, a disorder that would be prevalent in Knight's future written works. Unable to continue on his career path, Knight started writing, and his first book 'Lessons in Breaking' still remains unpublished. He wrote his second book, 'Little White Helpers', in 2018.
