Anderson Boemi Lawyers proudly supports Black Dog Ride 2018

By Anderson Boemi Lawyers

The team at Anderson Boemi Lawyers are proudly supporting the Black Dog Ride this year. 

Black Dog Ride commenced in 2009 when Steve Andrews rode solo around Australia to raise awareness of depression.  According to the ABS* one in seven Australians will experience depression in their lifetime. Anderson Boemi Lawyers have decided to support the Black Dog Ride in hope of raising positive awareness of mental health illnesses, and reduce associated stigma.

The stigma of mental illness, encourages silent suffering. It prevents people from receiving the proper medical diagnosis and effective treatment required to overcome their mental illness. 

We want to promote the understanding that mental health illnesses are more than just a "bad day"; or "a phase”. Mental health illnesses are, in fact, recognised medical conditions that can:-

  • be consuming, tiresome and exhausting;
  • distort ones perception of reality and self-worth;
  • impair one’s ability to think rationally; and
  • drain the ‘life’ out of an otherwise healthy human.

Effective treatment often requires psychological therapy, which may or may not also require the aid of medication. Overcoming a mental illness encompasses extensive training (or re-training) of the mind, ones thought processes, and the development of effective coping mechanisms. 

Even the process of receiving treatment can be exhausting, as there is no pro-forma cure for each sufferer. People who are diagnosed with a mental illness are often subjected to a series of ‘trial-and-error’ of different treatments and treatment combinations until a responsive and effective solution is found for that person.

Anderson Boemi Lawyers would greatly appreciate your help in putting an end to the stigma of mental illness and in particular the “black dog of depression”. We encourage our friends and families to step forward and show your support for mental health awareness and wellbeing. 

Our Warwick Anderson will be participating in the Black Dog Ride on 18 March 2018. Help show your support for Warwick by making a donation today!

I support the work done by the charity and the people who donate their time to fundraise for such cause. Unfortunately mental health issues affects us either directly or indirectly and more that we sometimes want to admit.
