Support My Walk for Mental Health Research

Did you know that 1 in 5 people experience symptoms of mental illness each year?

In fact, every day in Australia, 8 people will die by suicide.

Mental illness can be debilitating and can have a devastating impact on not only those living with it, but those around them. 

This October, I’ll be taking part in One Foot Forward to show people living with mental illness that they are not alone.

I'm walking to raise funds for the Black Dog Institute to support crucial mental health research and support services to help Australians impacted by mental illness and suicide.

It would mean so much to me if you'd support my walk this October.

Together, we can create a mentally healthier world, for everyone.

The Why

My walk for mental health 


Hi, thanks for clicking on the link to my fundraising page. Most of my friends and family know my story because I’ve been open and honest about it but here’s a refresher which I will keep short and simple. Simple because there’s nothing sweet about how debilitating mental illness can be. 


Before having a baby, I will admit that I knew nothing about mental illness and to be honest was completely unaware that it might affect me, in the form of postpartum psychosis and depression. 


When Georgia arrived, I expected to be in a love bubble of happiness but the opposite occurred. I became very ill very quickly and couldn’t control the intrusive thoughts in my mind. I couldn’t function or sleep, I barely ate and I couldn’t make a decision for the life of me. 


My quick acting support crew got me the help I needed and after being admitted to Helen Mayo House & battling for a couple of months, I was back on the way up. I am currently on medication and am still receiving professional support but I am back to my old self (if not better). I am also now a strong advocate for mental health and am so happy to be supporting this cause! 


Lastly, I would like to thank you for visiting this page, whether you have donated or not, you are part of my journey and I am super grateful
