My Story

Hi! This is Dylan and Lawson aka Brothers Reid. In March 2015 we launched a 2.5 year motorbikin endeavour Round the World. Check out www.BrothersReid.com for more info. We are fundraising for leading edge research undertaken by QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute. Our lives were shattered by the loss of our brilliant sister in 2011. Heidi was 27-years-old when she succumbed to the darkness of her depressive disorder and died by suicide.

The world has come a long way with respect to mental health awareness but so much more needs to be done with respect to understanding the science behind depression. Unfortunately there is no agreed tests to diagnose depression or major depressive disorders (MDD). QIMR’s Dr Michael Breakspear is working on developing a diagnostic tool. The aim is to help medical professionals to diagnose and treat more accurately and effectively patients suffering a range of mental illnesses. The research will use state of the art technology to track how the brain regulates emotion and responds to different stimuli. The ultimate aim is for the rollout of an effective use of targeted and physical therapy options for patients suffering from mental illness.

Thank You
