Our new Mentor Vests

A lot has happened in the last 18 months…

While I am not going to write about the details now; suffice to say our family has faced the realness of mental health challenges & death by suicide.

I want others, like our family, to be prepared…Prevention & early intervention is the key!

Because of that I have just completed our pilot of The Mentor Program to keep young people connected to their community via sport! This program aims to see young people supported as they journey the maze of adolescence.

Community Connections

The final event is to increase community capacity to talk about suicide; Suicide; Why talking about it won’t kill you.  After losing two young lives to death by suicide, from one class, within 12 months and watching our son grapple to want to stay, I think my reasons for this event are clear.

Below is a link to my latest FB post about the event and the website information.
