My Story

I am taking part in Blackmores Sydney Running Festival 2017 to raise funds for BeyondBlue. Mental Health is still considered taboo in this country . Having lost some beautiful people to suicide I want to do my bit in creating awareness and help to make a difference. It's okay to not be okay - but let's work together To create a society that supports one another and encourages people to talk about the pain they are experiencing. You can help too, by donating to my page. Any amount is appreciated - it all makes a difference! You can also support me by encouraging others to get involved, too. Please email the link to my page to your friends and family, or share it on social media. Thank you for your generosity and support -- it means a lot to me. Together we can help beyondblue create the world we want to see.

About my cause: beyondblue

3 million Australians are living with depression or anxiety

beyondblue provides information and support to help everyone in Australia achieve their best possible mental health, whatever their age and wherever they live.

Most Australians have some experience with anxiety and depression or related disorders, whether it is personal or via family, friends or work colleagues. beyondblue’s work is aimed at achieving an Australian community that understands depression and anxiety, empowering all Australians, at any life-stage, to seek help. beyondblue raises awareness, reduces stigma and ensures people have access to the information they need to support recovery, management and resilience.   

beyondblue is a national, independent, not-for-profit organisation and a bipartisan initiative of the Australian, state and territory governments.

beyondblue works in partnership with health services, schools, workplaces, universities, media and community organisations, as well as people living with depression/anxiety and their carers, to bring together expertise and provide tools and resources.
