Happy 7th Anniversary Black Dog Ride. On this day seven years ago, the 26th July 2009, Black Dog Ride began. At the foreshore in Busselton WA a group of friends and family gathered with a few supporters to wave me off on my solo mission. The mission was simple. Having lost my Mum and a very dear friend to suicide, I was determined to ride around Australia to raise awareness of depression and suicide prevention. To start conversations. To save lives.

Remember, depression is an illness, not a weakness and effective treatments are available. It's important to seek help early and with the right treatment most people recover. If you are concerned that you or someone you know may have depression, talk to a doctor or another health professional today. If we talk about depression and work together we can make a difference.
