Help me create a mentally healthier world!

I'm standing up to join Team Black Dog to turn ground breaking research into life saving action.

Mental illness affects 1 in 5 Australians every year, with the most common being depression and anxiety. Mental illness doesn’t discriminate. It affects people from all walks of life — individuals, families, workplaces and communities.

Myself has suffered with mental health and doing this challenge is so close to my heart. There are a lot of people out there not being able to access the support they need so please donate. Someone you know might be needing help. 

I'm inspired by the work of Black Dog Institute and want to support them by raising money as part of my participation in Black Dog Institute's Cradle Mountain Challenge.

Please help me help them by giving whatever you can by using the 'Donate' button.


The more people that know about Black Dog Institute, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot to so many!

Went on a beautiful walk with my daughter and children 9-11 year old with a group psychologist that works with them. All up we did under 10km left 9am and returned to cars by 1.45pm. The view was amazing from the top looking over Port Sorell.
