I have run Surfing Mums groups for over 8 years, and during this time have personally journeyed with many mums suffering from post-natal depression, anxiety and loneliness.
I have seen first-hand how our organisation gives parents from all backgrounds a safe and supportive environment to get back into the water; and how this regular “time out” each week has changed their life and connected them to like-minded parents in their community who love to surf.
I was shocked to hear that Suicide is the leading cause of death for Australians aged between 15 and 44. Surfing Mums Inc. is passionate about making a difference and supporting Australian families and so are delighted to show our support of Lifeline and to participate in the Lifeline Classic Surf Competition in October. Our goal is to fundraise for Lifeline and so help raise awareness for their suicide prevention and mental health support programs.
Please support Lifeline by donating here. Our Central Coast Surfing Mums team is ready to surf in support of this cause!
We’d love for you to also spread the word by sharing our page with our friends and family.
