My Story

I am taking part in Wellness Walk 2017 to raise much needed funds for Mental Health Carers NSW. Their work is really important, and I want to do what I can to help. But there is only so much I can do on my own. You can help too, by donating to my page. Any amount you can give 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 Mental Health Carers NSW create the world we want to see.

About my cause: Mental Health Carers NSW

Mental Health Carers NSW (formerly Arafmi NSW) is a non-government organisation that provides systemic advocacy and support for families, relatives and friends of people who experience mental illness, living in NSW. MHCN reaches out with friendship and understanding to all whose lives are touched by a mental health problem. We aim to maintain and improve existing levels of support services to all relatives and friends of people with a mental illness.

As the peak body for mental health carers in NSW, MHCN is regularly asked to provide feedback on policies and services on behalf of carers to the NSW Ministry of Health and to Local Health Districts. By influencing changes in policy, legislation and service provision, MHCN makes a positive difference to the mental health system for carers. In order to provide accurate and representative feedback, MHCN talks to people with lived carer experience across NSW and facilitate a number of Carer Peak Advisory Committees.

MHCN also operates a telephone Helpline service to provide support and referral to local mental health services for the families and carers of someone with a mental illness, and run a number of education workshops and training courses to upskill carers in their roles and empower them to become champions for mental health reform and participate in systemic processes to ensure the lived experience of mental health carers is included in service reform.

About Wellness Walk 2017

Welcome to the Wellness Walk 2017 The Wellness Walk is a fantastic opportunity for everyone to get out for a walk, fundraise and show their support for the one in four Australians living with mental illness. One Door is proud to host the Wellness Walk for its fifth year and we look forward to welcoming you on the day. There are two walks to choose from; either 2km walk around the beautiful Royal Botanic Gardens or a 5km across the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge and back. After the event you are welcome to enjoy your day in the grounds of Government House at the Wellness Festival. The Wellness Walk for mental illness is a great day out for the whole family. Don’t forget to set up your fundraising page to help support One Door and its partner charities. Come along and show your support for people living with mental illness, their families and carers.
