My very good friend Rod Ward and I are going to Tassie for two weeks in late October this year on the Black Dog Ride. We have formed Team Desiderata (redux) and aim to raise funds for Mental Health First Aid training to help combat depression and suicide.
ROD AND I NEED YOUR HELP!
I'd say everyone, or nearly everyone is affected in some way by depression or worse, by suicide. It may not be something we have experienced ourselves but we probably know someone in our family, in our friendship network, amongst our work colleagues, someone we volunteer with or someone in our local community who has been affected.
Depression and thoughts of suicide are insidious and isolating. People feel trapped and afraid to reach out for help. But as individuals and as a community we can do so much to help those who silently suffer and one of the best ways is to start a conversation and to listen non-judgementally. A problem shared is a problem halved.
Please help the Black Dog Ride raise $200,000 to fund five hundred scholarships for Mental Health First Aid training.
Team Desiderata is trying to contribute to the larger cause by setting our target at $2000. Any amount, no matter how small cumulatively makes a difference, so please take a moment to help us reach our goal.
Alternatively just text 'DESIDERATA' to 0437 371 371.
Much appreciated!
Cheers
Roger Fance
