I grew up in an extreme church that has been displayed in the media as a cult, which I am now not apart of and do view as a cult. As a young adult I now suffer from psychiatric illnesses which I believe are a direct result of the upbringing and strict/unconventional teachings from this religion. Can I sue on any grounds? Took place in VIC but I now reside in NSW. it's a world-wide cult/church.
