Mental health amongst Australian youth is a prominent issue. There still seems to be a big taboo around people asking for the help they need (only 18% of women suffering anxiety disorder will reach out for help and only 11% of men) and as a result suffer from ongoing mental and emotional health issues. It doesn't have to be this way and it's time to start turning things around
I spent years running from my problems, from what I felt and from myself. I ran away from myself so often, and so much, because the broken pieces of who I was weighed too much to pick up and put back together.
1000 days ago, to this day, I started my fight against anorexia, my fight against death. Everyday I still struggle to put two feet on the ground and push myself through a day. Now I pledge to run, but to run for a reason. My two feet are strong, my mind is strong and I ask you to help me raise funds so others can gain their strength back to.
