This Mental Health Week, I'm going to force myself to actually action something I truly stand for. I am a Mental Health nurse working with South Metro Health Services.

I believe intervening mental health as early as possible is paramount to achieving highest quality of life and optimal health outcomes (much like any other health condition), this is why I would like to walk in support of youth mental health. 

It is important to open up the discussions regarding mental health to help create better understanding of its nature and true contribution to burden of disease and poor health/socioeconomic outcomes. 

I will be challenging myself to walk 49km for mental health and suicide prevention. 

I'm inspired by the  perseverance and resilience of all those who are struggling with mental health, especially vulnerable youth, that is why I would like to support Youth Focus and the cause by participating in Walk for Me.

I know we are all tight on finances especially with COVID but even $1 would be amazing. You can sponsor my walk by clicking the 'Give Now' button.

Please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends, family and colleagues.

My Updates

I walked over 50km for you!

Saturday 16th Oct
To everyone who supported me and made the walk easier I cannot say thank you enough.

When I regain function of my brain I will blog about the journey properly 💕💕

It’s almost time

Wednesday 13th Oct
I made the goal and you guys delivered!

It is official, I will be walking from the mental health ward that I work on staring in Fremantle area and finishing in Butler all in one go!

I will live-stream my walk so you can see where your money went and maybe watch me torture myself 😂.

This walk will be done all in one day on the Saturday.

I just wanted to say a massive thank you again to everyone who has donated.

Mental health is such a difficult area of health to treat, prevent and occasionally cure… 

My walk will be tough, but only for one day… those living among you walk the tough walk every single day and this is in honour of them. 

Find me on Facebook or Instagram and flick me a message! ✌🏼

New Challenge to show my appreciation

Wednesday 15th Sep
I am so overwhelmed and grateful for the response I’ve had so far that I’ve decided to prematurely add a new challenge.

If the donations reach $900 I will walk 50 km in one day without stopping.

As I said I am a psychiatric/mental health nurse, So for this 50 km walk I will make the start location the ward that I work on in Fremantle all the way to Jindalee Beach in Butler. That is an estimated 10.5 hour walk and exceeds the 49km I have signed up to do.

Thank you again. I have no words. 

Challenge!

Wednesday 15th Sep
Thanks to those who have donated so far!

If I reach my goal before the commencement date I will walk 49km over two days doing 25km non-stop each day. That’s a walk from Scarborough to Mindarie. 

Thank you to my Sponsors
