Mental Health awareness is such an important issue that needs to be highlighted in our society. There is still a very strong stigma surrounding mental illness. We need to talk about it more and create conversation. Today I took part in the ‘Wellness Walk’ – a 6km walk from Government House in The Royal Botanic Gardens, through The Rocks, across The Sydney Harbour Bridge and then back to Government House. A fantastic event that raises money for mental illness and encourages everyone to increase their physical activity simply by going for a walk. All in all what a perfect way to spend a day off work! Exercising and raising money for charity all in one day!
