Did you know that 1 in 5 people experience symptoms of mental illness each year?
In fact, every day in Australia, 9 people will die by suicide.
Mental illness can be debilitating and can have a devastating impact on not only those living with it, but those around them.
This October, I’ll be taking part in One Foot Forward to help reduce the impact of mental illness and suicide. It's the first time I've ever done a fundraising challenge like this! My goal is to walk 100km and raise $350.
I'm walking to raise funds for Black Dog Institute, so that they can put ground-breaking new mental health treatment, education, and digital services into the hands of the people who need them most. It would mean so much to me if you donated to support my walk. In my 'day job', I refer clients to resources like the Black Dog Institute every week. It's important to me that free mental health care services are available to assist those in need 24/7.
Together, we can create better mental health for all Australians.
