The 2019 Ride for Youth will be my third year of doing the ride. I think the work of Youth Focus and its community in reach which provides a forum for conversations about mental health to young people living in rural Western Australia is vital.
The 6 months of training, fund raising and Ride week continues to be an amazing opportunity to give my time and commitment to a very worthwhile and important cause. There can never be enough opportunities for us all to talk about mental health and help reduce the stigma.
Working as a registered nurse and being a mum of three young men has meant that on both a personal and professional level I have seen the impact and devastation that happens when someone who is dearly loved struggles with depression, anxiety, suicidality or other mental health concerns.
