It is estimated that one in four people in the world will be affected by mental or neurological disorders at some point in their lives. Around 450 million people currently suffer from such conditions, placing mental disorders among the leading causes of ill-health and disability worldwide (World Health Organisation 2017). Australia is an amazing country, but we are not immune from this reality.

I am riding from Cairns to Cape York through some of Australia’s most remote country to raise awareness for Mental Health and to engage with Communities along the way. Many of our riders have personal stories that motivate them to be involved in this important activity. We need to destigmatise Mental Health, raise awareness and talk about the challenges many Australians face.

So often we have a personal story of how it has affected our direct, extended families or friends - in my case my Dad. Let's make sure we talk about this stuff to destigmatise Mental Health, raise awareness and talk about the challenges.

My Updates

29 May 2019

In just a two days time, I’m cycling over 600km for the Black Dog Institute and for mental health.

I’m raising funds to help change these statistics:
- 1 in 5 Australians experience a mental illness each year
- 65% of those do not seek help
- Suicide is the leading cause of death for Australians aged 15-45

Together, we can turn ground-breaking research into life-saving action and create a mentally healthier world.

Thank you so much for all the sponsorship
