Karen Lex and Gillian - BDR 2016

By The Marrickville Crew

Over a five year period to 2014, the average number of suicide deaths per year in Australia was 2,577. In 2014, there were 2,160 males and 704 females that died by suicide. That equates to an average of 7.8 deaths by suicide in Australia each day (http://www.mindframe-media.info/for-media/reporting-suicide/facts-and-stats). Partners, families, mates and colleagues are left behind and they too can struggle with the loss. We all need to talk about mental health and not be worried about saying, “Yes I am struggling” or “Give me a hand”. Karen, Lex and Gillian, all Sydney based women, have been riding with the Black Dog Ride since 2013. In that first ride, we travelled with riders from across Australia, converging on Alice Springs. Through the journey we started conversations about mental health and depression with people we met as well as raised crucial funds to curb these suicide rates. Help BDR achieve its goals by sponsoring Karen, Lex and Gillian which will assist in raising money to help organisations like Lifeline Australia and Mental Health First Aid and in turn save a life.
