The people who participate understand a range of mental illnesses that people encounter. Support and encouragement are key objectives throughout, and we conduct each walk in a friendly and relaxed social environment.

You are welcome to walk with us if you fit into any of the following categories:
  • Personal experience of a mental illness
  • Relative of someone with experience of a mental illness
  • Friend of someone with experience of a mental illness
  • Carer of someone with experience of a mental illness
  • A person who wants to raise awareness of mental illness in the community
  • Health professional

Come along for some exercise and a chat in a scenic location where people participate in a variety of recreational activities. You will meet new friends and enjoy morning tea.

You are encouraged to bring a friend and your camera. BYO morning tea.

If you don't know anyone who is attending a walk, you are welcome to call me, Darren Stones, on mobile 0419 200 469, and I will help you connect with people at our walks.
