Sabine

I walked in solidarity this October for Australians affected by mental illness and suicide. You are never alone. I always hope for people to know that I care and never want anyone to feel they need to face anything alone. Too many lives are affected by mental illness and suicide for which the stigma must continue to be removed. There's still much work to be done and I believe we are all responsible for making this happen. I'm grateful for being told how much I'm loved even when I didn't believe it myself, and grateful to be reminded of that love when my illnesses cause me to feel anything but strong. Let's be there for everyone in need and pay attention to those around us, to share love and support with them. Never wait to be asked. Just be there, because people aren't always brave enough to ask for help.....trust me I know.

Anna and John

We are walking in solidarity this October for Australians who are affected by mental illness and suicide. Many of us have been greatly impacted by Covid-19 pandemic and have experienced stress, anxiety and depression during these days,. It is sad to know that many people were not able to cope from their struggles. Our family was not spared from this difficult journey. By walking together, we will show them that we care. There is help and support available to those in need. You are not alone ❤️

Archana

I've walked to support love, mental health. At some stage, everyone goes through extreme loneliness, confusion and unable to be supported by near and Dear ones.

I am walking this October for all Australians battling mental health issues. I also walk for myself and people close to me who suffer daily from depression and anxiety.

Kay

I’m walking in solidarity this October for Australians affected by mental illness and suicide. You are not alone. Mental illness is hidden, others do not appreciate ones struggles as illnesses are invisible not like broken limbs! People suffering Mental illness need the support they require - this is a way to provide that help.

I have walked more than 100kms in solidarity this October for Australians affected by mental health challenges and feelings of suicide. You are not alone. I have walked the past 10 days with a bruised bone in my left foot! It was worth every step, even the wobbly ones!

Bruce Watt

I have loved this group. I have loved this challenge. I love the purpose of improving mental health outcomes. I am proud of my efforts. As an 82 year old I have done 344km. I have raised over $600. Bet there aren’t many people older than me that have done more kms but I’m disappointed in the amount I have raised. I attempted suicide about 7 years ago so I know the mental side of this issue. The stories related in this group have been both immensely sad yet immensely inspiring. To all those who have lost loved ones you have my sincere sympathy. To all those still struggling with the Black Dog you have my love, my understanding, my sympathy and my offer of help and support in any way I can.

Cheryl

I'm walking in solidarity to raise the awareness of mental health research. As having lived experience and having to walk through my own journey of losing close friends to suicide has given me the knowledge and motivation to help support others. Mental Health and Suicide is so prevalent in our lives that everything we do can make a difference in someones because life matters.

Zoe

We go to the gym to workout our bodies, so why not train the most important and complex organ....our brains! Let's get uncomfortable together and work on flexing our mental and emotional intelligence. Mental health is more relatable than ever and it affects not only those living with it, but those around them. Creating a safe and open community is vital if we want to drop the number of 8 suicides a day in Australia to zero.

Being diagnosed with OCD in April 2021 (finally!) was such a life-changing moment for me, for the better. After years with an unnamed struggle, at least now I have named my black dog and I am doing therapy, trying different meds and most importantly learning to give myself compassion. Walking for everyone out there dealing with mental illness - every day is hard but by sticking around and persevering, you make the world brighter. All my love x

Kimberley

it is coming up to the end of the month. i set a goal to walk 100km for the month of October, to raise money for mental health. I have been holding back on putting my progress on face book. why? because i have only walked 58km and there is only 3 days left in October. once again those thoughts of failure try to creep in. you werent good enough, what made you think you would get it right this time?. You wonder why you try when u feel u always fail. lying in bed these words came into my mind, it is well with my soul. as a little girl, i just loved stopping, feeling the sun shine on my face, i was free to dance, laugh, cry and scream. i was free. my soul found peace in nature. i always knew i was just the luckiest girl in the world, not because my life was perfect, but because i saw blessings in the simple and free things in life. Dont really know where this rant of mine is going, all i know is, dont let those thoughts or feelings creep in. you are good enough, you may not reach your goal, but keep pushing for it, find peace in your soul, let the sun shine on your face, find peace in a babies cry, show love and find you will receive it in return. there are three days left in october, my sons birthday is friday, i have to work and having a bbq party here Saturday, i will try and do a big walk or two before the month ends. Guess the whole point of me doing this was to raise awareness of depression, suicide and the impact it has. Coming from a person who has been in that dark hole. please keep reaching out, even when the replies stop. Kindness, love, sunshine, rain, a child's giggle, an adults chuckle can make a bigger difference than u can imagine. Never give up on you, never give up on them.and thankyou to everyone who never gave up on me, even when i fail.

I am walking in solidarity this October to raise awareness about mental health.

I have come to the conclusion of suicide to make it all go away many times and I am glad I am still here, I have achieved so much in the last year and fighting my mental health battle is something I am very proud of. I lost one of my best friends to suicide so during this month I am taking this opportunity to walk and run for all those who suffer and all of those who we have lost. It's OK to not be OK. Speak out, someone loves you. Someone needs you and by god one day you're going to do amazing things.

It costs me nothing but my time to put one foot in front of the other.

A tribute for Rhys, Marcello, Cory, and to all the lives lost too soon.

I’m walking in memory of Rhys, Marcello, Cory and all of the lives lost too soon. There is not a day that goes by that you are not thought about. You have had such an impact on everyone closest to you, even to those who you weren't. You will never be forgotten. You are all missed each and every single day. Mental health is such an important part of everyones lives and should be thought of in the exact same sense as psychical health. We all have our own problems and there will always be people suffering. We are all in this together. You are not alone.

Tracy

I’m walking in solidarity this October for Australians affected by mental illness and suicide. You are not alone. I am often asked why my brand CBFitwear is encouraging people to CBF. Shouldn’t we be encouraging them to exercise and to eat better? In my view, that is the same as telling someone with depression to just get over it. It’s just not that easy. It’s like trying to drive on a flat tyre. Yes, the car will go forward, you might feel like you are getting somewhere, but it won’t get you very far, and you are at risk of making things a lot worse. Until one day you can’t go any further.⁠ One person’s experience of mental health can be totally different from the next. Why do some people find it easier to overcome life’s challenges? It’s usually because they have been given the tools early on to handle it. They have had role models or experiences to show them how to cope. They developed their own strategies to build resilience or just have determination.⁠ It’s also worth considering that they might not be handling it that well… they are just better at hiding it.⁠

Jim

I'm walking in memory of my cousin and friends who lost their life so young 💔 . Sharing their memory and walking in hopes that anyone struggling reaches out or can feel strong and brave enough to speak out. I am walking for my myself, friends and family 💛 From a young age I struggled with social anxiety, being bullied, relationships abuse and was always worrying about being judge. I have overcome that fear and changed my thoughts to positive and told myself I would help those who felt the same. Sometimes I still have bad days but I always focus on the good and know no matter what I am who I am and love myself for that. We are all in this together. Anyone struggling or anyone who just needs to talk I am hear to listen. I’m walking in solidarity this October for Australians affected by mental illness and suicide. You are not alone.

Lauren

I'm walking in solidarity this month for all Australians including myself impacted by mental illness. I have battled depression and anxiety since I was a little girl. - I lost my mum when I was 4 to a drink driver - I live with a rare, debilitating auto immune disease - I was physically and mentally abused - I lost my brother to cancer aged 40. I was self harming which is something I'm not proud of but can't change. The pain of that was better than the pain of watching my brother slowly die. I would go into a state of nescience. I would wake up and realise what I had done but not proper recollection of it. The mental health system across Australia is not good enough. Most psychologists have closed thier books and aren't taking new patients including young children and teenagers. We need more help now more than ever with what everyone is trying to cope with during this COVID pandemic. Also the cost of seeing a psychologist is expensive which deters patients from seeing one if they can get in. Even on a mental health plan. I walk for my friend who lost her father to suicide. She is also walking for this great cause.

Our journey has not been easy and certainly dealt with adversities and we are stronger together. I will continue ti shine light on mental health and having the hard conversations with in the community.

Sertraline/Venlafaxine/citalopram/mirtazapine/fluoxetine/amitriptyline/Duloxetine/Desvenlafaxine So if you're unlucky enough to know what these tablets are or know a loved one who takes them, then I don't have to describe to you what this post is regarding. But if you don't I will fill you in. That medication allows people to deal with a normal day to day life. Although most days it leaves them tired, spaced out and emotionless. Crazy right? Why would anyone want to feel like that. Well this is why. You see Some people suffer from Depression and anxiety & OCD In their brain it doesn't sit right, something seems different. They notice little differences that 'normal' people wouldn't notice. That comment you didn't tag them in, but you tagged other people? They see that, and say to themselves why didn't you tag me? What's up with me? You read that message they sent and they see that you did, but you didn't reply.. why didn't you reply? And they feel like they have done something to upset you? You didn't say I love you on the phone.. do you not love them anymore? Do you love someone else instead? They just made a comment about them Was it a joke? Was that person supposed to laugh? Or did they mean it? Are they being nice? Are they talking about them? Do they talk about them? And they then think I bet they don’t like me really. They say sorry all the time. They feel like they annoy everyone. And for all those questions they will spend hours trying to answer. Let it all build up in their mind, until it sends them to tears...... it's mental that isn't it!!! That they see things that way. It's not only mental changes, but physical changes. They don't eat a lot or overeat, mainly rubbish, because they need it now and need the energy from lack of sleep. Insomnia, up all night answering questions to situations that don't even exist, or sleep too much and waste half their day still feeling tired. They still smile and they have every excuse for when you ask why. But the tablets can help them. Because they know when they start to feel this way or think this way, they need help. They know that when their behaviour starts to change, They need guidance. And they understand that they don't need to be ashamed. They don't need to be understood. They just need to be accepted. Everyone is fighting a battle and sometimes you need to be kinder. So I may just be another person who's talking about mental health.... Living with this illness is hard, but trying to understand it, is even harder. It’s also 100 times harder if they have another condition on top of this. Don't suffer in silence.

Walking is a necessary action to take myself where I need to be, and want to go, and putting one step forward is a great place to start. The simple act of walking and spending time outside is so underestimated as a tool for health and wellbeing for all of us. Physically, mentally and spiritually, walking is an uplifter for me and recharges my mind aswell, as I'm sure it does for many of you. Walking Together. Standing Together. Stronger Together.

Bek Bishop

Having struggled with depression between 2010 & 2019 and continuing to live with chronic pain, anxiety & PTSD after my car accident, I had always felt that it had been a weakness until 2019. I started to push the boundaries created by these issues and those that I created for myself as a result and it was only by pushing myself that I really started to live and enjoy life beyond my own four walls. I started to go outside more and got more involved in our business, which led to networking, which led to creating some beautiful relationships and friendships and wonderful experiences. Today, I am quite grateful for the accident as I wouldn't be who I am otherwise. I wouldn't have had to dig deep and build such resilience, grit and determination. I wouldn't have excelled in our beloved building industry. I wouldn't have had the opportunity to overcome so much. I would have likely stayed in my comfort zone and had a lovely life, but now instead of challenges, all I see are opportunities and I am so excited. Last year I did this walk and it was great. At the time, I barely left the house so I thought 20km was going to be near impossible. But I ended up walking 66km!! And I kept walking and started running until I collapsed and injured myself in November and even ended up in Hospital. I have struggled since with back pain, I'm back to square one and quite deconditioned as I've been unable to return to rehab, but this year I have pledged to walk 80km and I will do my absolute best to get there. Having had to re-learn how to walk in 2010, it means a lot to me to be able to do this walk for mental health. All I can do is put 'One Foot Forward' and just keep going. My company, Elite Building Services Vic Pty Ltd, is going to donate $500 of its profits from every Building Contract entered into in the month of October to this cause and we have lots in the pipeline so I'm excited to be able to raise some much needed funds for the Black Dog Institute! I really enjoy my walking. It's so nice to be outside and enjoying our beautiful walking tracks again. I can't wait to do it again! I'm proud to be a founding member and hope to be an Ambassador someday soon.

Janine Diessel

I'm walking for my friends & family who lost their battle, too many, and for those who continue the fight. For my daughter's that struggle daily to function, to believe in themselves regardless of those of us around them begging for them to know how much more than worthy they are, how loved, they are not and never will be a burden. For my ex-mother-in-law, who at 95, might not be here tomorrow if she was not in care. For myself, struggling with my own issues, and still grieving the loss of both parents, breast cancer, and not seeing my grown children for 4 months. I've been reading all the posts, it's heartbreaking 💔 Love & strength to everyone you, we, are all worthy ❤

A tribute for Genevieve Sophia Schutte

I’m walking in memory of someone I love this October to support Australians affected by mental illness and suicide. That someone is my beautiful daughter, Genevieve who left this world tragically, Prematurely and abruptly, on 24th October 2017. Genevieve will never be forgotten and this month, as I walk out a grief that will never end, with each step I celebrate with joy, her very precious life with which she touched so many lives. I walk in gratitude that I am here, and that I can walk. I walk for every person which is grieving and I walk to honour the lives of those who succumbed fatally to mental illness. I walk in God’s strength and love, and I walk in gratitude to Him and to all those who have loyally and lovingly stood by and walked with me and carried my burden. Every step this month are like footprints in the sand. Sometimes two sets. Others, one. Until I see my beautiful Genevieve again, I will walk. And I will speak her name.

These photos represent these past 4 years. These first picture is take 3 days before I tried to take my life for the first time in hospital and then 2 days later I would try again and almost succeeded. I was very lucky that night. I had a wonderful nurse check on me and notice something wasn't quite right, she saved my life.....the nurse specialling me had no idea what I had done....right in front of her. I would spend the next 4 months scheduled in hospital and under go my first lot of ECT. My mental health had steamed from 12 years of mental abuse from my exhusband and I felt like I was worth nothing and no one needed me around not even my w daughter's. Once I started to get better, I made the biggest and hardest decision in mine, to live my exhusband and for my kids to stay in Sydney while I move to qld to be with my parents. My kids had been through enough and I didn't want to put them through anymore....they were happy and doing well, all I wanted was them to have me around and knew for this to occur I needed to far away from my exhusband and finally focus on me. Well I did it....it wasn't easy, I have relapsed twice since being in qld but I have the most amazing Dr who knows me so well and can address things when they start to go wrong. I work full-time as an injury management advisor helping people RTW after an Injury and one of my biggest things I look at is there mental health, and I always connect with my workers because I can relate with them. I have someone special in my life who has shown me what it is like to feel loved, supported and cared for and that I am actually worth something and not nothing. I have an amazing support network. Even though my kids are not with me everyday and the ex still tries his narcissistic ways, the girls are thriving, happy and health and I talk to the everyday.....and they know and understand why I am here. No matter your reason for doing this challenge, for those doing it for themselves and feeling let down by the days they don't complete a days walk....remember you are worthy and courageous just by taking one step or by taking many....and as a community we are all here for eachother.

October is Mental Health Month. Today 10/10/2021 is the World Mental Health Day. Mental illness can be debilitating and can have a devastating impact on not only those living with it, but those around them. I’ll be walking to make a difference to the lives of people touched by mental illness and suicide! I'm fundraising to raise money for life-changing research into treatment and prevention of mental illness, as well as vital support services. I will be walking 100km or more this October. Never Walk Alone! You are not Alone too!

Phoebe

I'm walking in the hope mental health can be better resourced in the future to help those falling between the cracks.
