I’m walking in solidarity this October for Australians affected by mental illness and suicide. You are not alone. I hope to smash my 100km goal and the stigma of Borderline Personality Disorder. This exercise will help me.

Trying to help do my bit for all those who have been impacted in the last 18 months due to Lockdowns,and feeling isolated. Black Dog Institute do such an amazing job, and I can only imagine how under resourced they must be right now, so every dollar would be crucial right now to support those in need 🙏💜
