Why I’m participating

It is no secret that I have and still am struggling with my mental health over the past year. I am currently on my second admission to a psychiatric hospital for the next 3 weeks to help improve my condition.

1 IN 4 YOUNG PEOPLE (I am aware that now I’m 30, I’m probably not classified as “young” anymore, but the sooner people can get help the better!) IN AUSTRALIA IS CURRENTLY EXPERIENCING A MENTAL HEALTH DIFFICULTY. BUT THERE’S AN EVEN BIGGER PROBLEM: 70% OF THOSE WHO NEED HELP DON’T GET IT. AND, SUICIDE REMAINS THE LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH OF YOUNG PEOPLE IN AUSTRALIA. IN 2019, 461 YOUNG PEOPLE IN AUSTRALIA DIED BY SUICIDE.

I am aiming to swim 50km in the month of March to raise money and awareness for this cause.

50km is ambitious, but I will give it my all.

Thank you everyone for your continued support over this year, please share this if you can, any amount means something and adds up! I want to help as many people as I can! 

I also apologise for the spam, I will be re-posting this each week to hopefully raise my goal of $500

Thank you to my Sponsors
