My Story

Hey I'm Gabby! and I suffer from depression and anxiety, and struggle with thoughts of self-harm and suicide each and everyday. This year I am taking part in Blackmores Sydney Running Festival 2018 to raise much needed funds for beyondblue. Each day I battle with my sneaky devil of a brain as it relentlessly works against me...and sometimes I get close to losing this battle. If it wasn't for organisations such as beyondblue, I don't know if I'd still be here today, and that's why beyondblue's work is so very important! Please join me in helping beyondblue to keep providing support services and programmes, such as their 24/7 phone support service- which has personally gotten me out of multiple pickles! Make a change with me, for better mental health support and awareness. You can help by donating to my page, encouraging others to get involved, sharing it on social media or by joining our team 'ExpressoDepressos' in the Running Festival!!!! Thank you for your generosity and support, it truly means the world to me. By helping beyondblue, together we can create the world we want to see.

About my cause: beyondblue

3 million people in Australia are living with anxiety or depression. Every day, nearly eight people take their own lives.

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

Most people in Australia 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 anxiety and depression, empowering all people in Australia, at any life-stage, to seek support. 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.  

For information on anxiety, depression and suicide prevention, visit www.beyondblue.org.au or call the beyondblue Support Service on 1300 22 4636.
