Trisha Abbey

My walk is dedicated to the memory of Jamie Gibson

Trisha Abbey


I’m walking in solidarity this October for Australians affected by mental illness and suicide in memory of my 25 yr old Son Jamie who lost his battle with depression 7 weeks ago. Please reach out for help. You are not alone. I take every step forward for you J. Love and miss you so much. Love Mum x

I’m walking in solidarity this October for my Son Jamie who I lost to suicide 6 weeks ago. We must keep speaking about mental health and offer support to those in need. You are not alone.

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, 9 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 help reduce the impact of mental illness and suicide.

I'm walking to raise funds for Black Dog Institute, so that they can put ground-breaking new mental health treatment, education, and digital services into the hands of the people who need them most.

It would mean so much to me if you donated to support my walk.

Together, we can create better mental health for all Australians.

My Updates

Thankyou For Your Generosity & Support

A sincere message of thanks for all the kind and generous donations. I aim to continue to climb the leaderboard into the top 10 which is certainly achievable, and also raise money to support those living with mental health issues.
We can make a difference and save families from a lifetime of heartbreak.
The one-foot forward fundraiser is helping me get through the hardest of days. Walking is what helps me the most living my new life of grief anxiety.  J wanted me to continue moving forward and this fundraiser has helped me find purpose during this time of raw grief.
J would be so proud of me, and humbled by the generosity of those who are supporting me.
In honor of J, the kindest selfless man with a pure heart of gold   XO

In memory of J

I'm walking in memory of my 25 year old Son J who I lost to suicide 6 weeks ago. 
Despite my ongoing attempts to get him help, I was advised due to the mental health act, he being an adult needed to call for help.
Something needs to change.
