I’m walking in memory of the people effected by complex mental health condition/s that I work with now, that I or colleagues worked with previously including those who are no longer around. You are never forgotten.

I’m walking in solidarity this October for Australians affected by mental illness and suicide. You are not alone. It’s okay not to be okay. Walking to remove the taboo. Together we can lift each other up. Mental illness doesn’t make you weak, it makes you human. Hoping to spread this message to those who need to hear it in their hearts and minds.

Anthony A tribute for Shane ' Mossy' D'Stott

In memory of a great bloke and a very dear friend who, in a time where awareness was not the greatest, was lost to us. In support of those in our community and across Australia that are currently impacted by the pandemic, job loss and all other personal matters wearing down resilience and fortitude. In hope for those that find themselves in need of assistance and support moving forward. We walk to raise awareness this October.
