I have struggled most of my adult life with depression & my anxiety has heightened during the lockdowns. I no longer know how to interact socially & panic when I need to leave my home. Some days are darker than others. Some days success is as simple as showering or making the bed. Some days I eat my feelings, all of them. Together, we can shine a light on the dark by putting one foot forward. Let's do this!

Carol

I'm walking this October to raise awareness for mental health issues occurring for our young men in rural Australia. They are one of the highest statistics for suicide at present and this has to stop. In rural areas mental health still has the stigma that you have to be tough, you can't cry, you just have to battle on, your a loser if you show emotions. This has to turn around and our young and older men need to know its ok to not feel ok and that its ok to talk to someone about it.

Mel Bateson

I’m walking in solidarity this October for Australians affected by mental illness and suicide. You are not alone. I am one of you. Something that has helped me a bit during tougher times has been saying to myself "This too shall pass". Sometimes yelling it. Sometimes crying it in the shower. It helps me to remember that feeling bleak and numb doesn't last, and that I've been like this before and things have gotten better.

Delilah

I am living proof that you can not only survive depression but also thrive with it. My black dog Sampson will be with me forever, but it's on my terms not his. It's ok to not be ok, your voice matters and inside each of us is the strength to overcome anything, even you don't know it yet. People do care and do want to listen; you are never alone, please hold onto that. <3 :)

Bernie

A tribute for My Son

This year my sweet boy (14) fell into severe depression, self harm, suicidal thoughts, so severe that I thought I would lose him many times throughout the year. Watching your kid struggle with Mental Illness is lonely, devastating and heart breaking and help is not readily available. 2021 feels like it has been a s*** storm, hit by a tornado and then hit by a tsunami and some days I didn’t think things could get any worse and they would. My eternal optimism view on life has been tested beyond words this year but we are still here standing, taking one day at a time. But for now we are having far more good days than bad, there is no greater sound than my kids in the kitchen laughing and talking and giving each other attitude. Remember to reach out to people, talk openly to your kids about mental health, have real conversations with them without phones or other distractions, just keep showing up for them, just keep showing them they are loved, even on days when you get nothing in return. To anyone who is fighting along side their kids against their demons my heart goes out to you x

Lila

Coping with mental illness is difficult enough without the stresses of a global pandemic. I know my personal struggle with my mental health has not been made easier by the, fear, restrictions and changes to my regular lifestyle. These past couple of years have been unusual and challenging, and I'm walking for everyone who might need a little more support lately. I want to be more transparent about these difficulties to help break the stigma I have for myself, talking about my mental health. Be kind to yourself.

Jen

Here is a TRUE yarn for your Friday. I have had some really tough times in my life, mainly residue from abusive relationships. I am not telling you this to share the details of those, but to acknowledge what I learnt from them in the hope to shed some light. I have hit rock bottom twice in the last ten years and firstly I was so lucky to find a professional to guide me through and out of those times. Secondly, walking I think also saved my life. There is something about forward momentum, putting one foot in front of the other that really helped. Today is World Suicide Prevention Day, we all need to get better at asking questions to our loved ones and ensuring we offer a safe and validating space for people to open up and feel heard and seen. Next month I am walking 250km’s to raise money for the Black Dog Institute , an incredible and reputable organisation doing amazing work in particular at identifying the barriers to people reaching out and trying to break them down. If you have $5 to spare I would love your support ! Here’s hoping that we have a little more freedom then, otherwise I won’t just be calling out for donations but for fitness buddies to walk around the block with me, over and over 😂! Please remember that social media isn’t a true gauge on how people are doing, it doesn’t show the super messy hard times, so please check on your mates ! ✌🏼 https://www.onefootforward.org.au/s/37950/39397/s

I’m walking in memory of someone I love this October to support Australians affected by mental illness and suicide. This is my beautiful big brother Matthew, He was a kind sensitive man who only showed his tough side because as a man its looked as soft to speak about how your feeling and show a vulnerable side to you self. He took his life last year on the 21st of August and our lives will never be the same the hole you left can never be filled. and we are definitely not better of without him. The love and care you showed for everyone around you is hard to find humanity these days and now your light is gone. You will never be forgotten.

Angela

There are so many people around Australia and the world, who suffer in silence when it comes to mental health. Let's unite to raise money to help so many people around Australia to keep on taking that next step. With every day you will get stronger. I personally have been affected by depression and suicide thoughts, and it all started from when I was a teenager, when I was also anerexic and bulimic. I am so glad I just kept going and pushed my way through depression, as I would have missed out on all the amazing things I have experienced in my life, including giving birth to two beautiful babies, travelling the world, and running my own businesses. You are not alone.

Patrick

Those who know me well will know that anxiety and I have walked hand in hand for many years now. 🤷‍♂️ While I am known to be positive, the incurable optimist and self driven, the truth of the matter is that there are times where anxiety walks in front of me blocking my view of what’s ahead and slowing me down, sometimes even to a stop where the only thing I can think will help is to sleep until it goes away. 👋 Often, I walk in front of anxiety. The times where I feel like I could take on the world, where my goals are clear and the path to success is totally visible. In these times nothing can stop me, nothing can slow me down. 🏔 But most of the time, anxiety and I walk side by side, just waiting for the next trigger, or the next burst of inspiration where one of us will overtake the other. 🚀 Anxiety isn’t a feeling I would want anyone to have to deal with. 🤦🏻‍♂️ The understanding I have of mental health and how many people are in the same boat as me I believe is the reason why I’m still here today doing what I do. Because people talk about it. Because I know I’m not alone. Because I am now able to recognise when things aren’t right and I know the things that help me realign myself and slow anxiety down to a halt. 👊 You are not alone. You've got this. We've got this. 💪

I’m walking in solidarity this October for Australians affected by mental illness and suicide. You are not alone. Depression and anxiety are mental health issues I am all too familiar with. I am grateful to have learnt to live with it, with the amazing support from friends and family. However, there are are many who don't have this support and the coping mechanisms to continue on. No one should feel like they can't go on. Exercise, walking in particular gets me out in the nature I love and reminds me to appreciate the little things. Thank you for your support! xx

Ellie Whye

A tribute for Ryan Hill

In July 2017, I lost my best friend to suicide. There is not a day that goes by where he isn't on my mind. I urge everybody to ask the question "ARE YOU OKAY?" regularly to anybody that you feel may need it. I will admit, I do struggle with the phrase "are you okay?" because I asked it to somebody I cared about so much but he wasn't okay, and at that stage he was gone forever, and I don't think I will ever forgive myself. There will always be somebody out there who cares about you. Let's break the stigma of mental health being "shameful". Ellie xxx

Everyone is born with the right to health and happiness. But through nature or nurture, many of us live a life that includes mental ill-health.

This year I’m walking to support myself and to support others; to light a candle rather than curse our darkness.
