Solidarity Wall

Martin

Last year I walked 120 kms in the month and have committed this year to 150. One of the reasons is that, during the year, I have become even more acutely aware of the problems surrounding mental illness and have talked to more people who have suffered. The more we all do, the more everyone will become more aware and informed. I'm walking in solidarity this October for Australians affected by mental illness and suicide. You are not alone.
