Just wanted to let you know that I’m a bit proud that you’ve been wearing your blue wristband this week. And I was very proud to be associated with a soccer club that held such an amazing beyondblue fundraiser bash on Friday night (where said band was acquired).
Because it’s a bit of a big thing. When I was a kid no-one talked about mental illness. And even though there’s still stigma around today, it’s nothing compared to the not-talking-about it of the 80s in which I grew up.
The thing that impressed me most about the Surfside Waves Soccer Club fundraiser was the young guy – whose name I can’t find – who MCd and shared his own experience (albeit briefly) of depression. And spoke about how the Waves had supported him on his journey.
I’ll write more about this another time but just want you to know that you can always talk to me about anything – even if it’s to say, I need to talk to someone Mum but you’re not the person 😉
