My Story

Well... There's no going back now! On October 8th I will be doing one of the craziest things I think I'll ever do. I'll be stepping into the boxing ring for the annual 'Fight For Your Cause' event! Why would I do such a crazy thing?! All in the name of raising money for Mental Illness awareness!
Mental Illness Fellowship of North Queensland aim to help those with mental Illness and provide support to the individual and the family by offering a range of up to date diagnosis and treatment informations as well as rehabilitation club houses. I chose MIFNQ because they are so inclusive and very community and family centred! Their programs are made accessible and inclusive so that people who wouldn't normal be able to access such programs and services are able to. They offer additional support services to those living in rural and remote parts of Queensland by offering free telephone services and counselling. They even offer and provide support services for those affected by droughts, service personnel who have been overseas, they offer carer support programs as well as holding Community Education programs.
This is such an important cause for me. Mental illness affects 1 in 5 people but touches us all in one way or another. I am raising money for this cause because in 2012 my best friend committed suicide after a long battle with depression. After this I had a long struggle myself with depression and know just how crippling mental illnesses can be. My aim is also to get people talking about their mental health and to know that it's important to talk about it. This cause is something I am so passionate about raising awareness for. I believe that with the right outreach programs and support services we can help improve the lives of people with mental illness and help intervene before suicide becomes an option.
Please help me raise money and awareness for this important cause by donating...Wish me luck!!

Thank You
