CANNING STOCK ROUTE WALKING TREK FOR MENTAL ILLNESS AND SUICIDE AWARENESS
Our Community page for everyone to share; Our aim of creating awareness and acceptance of depression, anxiety, mental illness and suicide prevention. There is also information on our trek, the walkers and volunteers Please like our page and help us create a growing community of acceptance.
We are a group of 4 ladies Sarah Whitmarsh, Jo Graham, Cathy Williams, Rose Weber and our only boy 16 year old Samuel Lancaster. The Canning Stock Route is a metaphor for anyone who is in a dark place, both physically and mentally just keep going never give up, it does not matter how you achieve your goals in life, it only matters that you get there in the end. Our aim is to walk as a team to achieve our goals of creating awareness and our own personal target. We are not walking the CSR to break any world records, we are walking the CSR for a common goal of creating awareness and stopping the stigma associated with mental illness, one step at a time.

5000 KM BICYCLE RIDE FOR SUICIDE AWARENESS 2013
In April/May of 2013 we completed a 5000 km bicycle ride starting in Geraldton and travelled up the Great Northern Highway to Port Hedland then back down the North West Coastal Highway back to Geraldton. We visited schools, mines, towns, local communities, aboriginal communities and anyone else we met along the way. Our aim was to create as much awareness as possible about suicide prevention. And the impact of suicide on loved ones, depression, mental illness and all the treatments and help available. We are also handed out 3500 resource information packs with lots of resources about mental illness, suicide and situational crisis, depression, bullying, substance abuse, plus much more and where to get help and the treatments available
Suicide Prevention Australia
Suicide Prevention Australia (SPA) is the peak body for the suicide prevention sector in Australia. SPA works collaboratively to develop a community that knows how to ask for help and how to give help.
Few people realise that suicide is a bigger killer than road accidents or skin cancer in Australia. We want to see the number of suicides halve in the next decade.
As the lead agency of the National Suicide Prevention Coalition, we build and facilitate partnerships to reduce the stigma around mental illness and suicide, and to assist the healing for people with lived experience of suicide attempts and suicide.
