Did you know that 1 in 5 people experience symptoms of mental illness each year?
In fact, every day in Australia, eight people will die by suicide.
Mental illness can be debilitating and can have a devastating impact on not only those living with it, but those around them.
Next month former policeman Phillip Brand, will be taking part in One Foot Forward showing people living with mental illness that they are not alone. He’s walking to raise funds for the Black Dog Institute to support crucial mental health research and support services to help Australians impacted by mental illness and suicide. He is planning to stride along the sands of Seven Mile Beach and the road to Gerringong for 100 km and has already gathered considerable financial support.
