Diedre Cordner

I'm swimming to save lives in honour of my 16 year old son, Daniel 💞

  • This is my first year diving

  • in for youth mental health

Did you know suicide is the leading cause of death for young people in Australia?

That means that each year more young people die by suicide than in car accidents or from cancer.

This March, I'm swimming to make sure young people in Australia have the mental health support they urgently need.

By sponsoring my challenge, you’ll be helping to prevent youth suicide.

All funds raised will help young people feel better about today and the future, no matter what challenge they're facing.

Hey Deirdre, Youth mental health is potentially very heavy. In many cases there's too much awfulness to contemplate.
