I'm putting One Foot Forward Together for mental health

On 15 May 2021, I will put One Foot Forward Together and walk with my community in Melbourne for Black Dog Institute to support mental health.

I am doing this because one in five Australians are affected by mental illness each year, and roughly 60% of people with a mental illness do not seek help.  

Did you know that just one hour of exercise a week helps prevent depression? Walking at One Foot Forward Together helps to remove the stigma around mental illness and create a mentally healthier world.

Please donate today. Whatever you can spare will make a MASSIVE difference.

If you want to join me, please do! The more the merrier. Just click on the homepage for more info!

Thank you SO MUCH!

Why Have I Chosen To Do This?

Tuesday 11th May
On the 8th of May 2020 I attempted suicide twice in 24 hours after being discharged out of Psych. This has impacted me, my friends and family incredibly. 
I have suffered with Mental Illnesses for over 5 years and I am now truly grateful to be here and help out where I can. 
Supporting an organisation like this helps thousands of Australians experiencing mental health issues and help preventing suicide. 
Everyday is now a new day, some days are still a struggle but seeking the proper help, getting sober and bringing exercise into my routine has changed me for the better. Having amazing friends and family around to support me without the judgment has helped me get on to a positive road. 
If you are worried about a friend or family member, please don't be afraid to reach out to them and reassure them they have your support and that they can speak to you. 

So, if you have a dollar to spare, it is greatly appreciated and you are donating to a cause close to my heart. 

Thank you to my Sponsors
