LET'S TALK Bike Ride

Sun 26 May 2019 06:37 am to 06:37 am

LETS TALK members are riding from Perth to Warnambool, to raise awareness and reduce the stigma around mental health.

“45% of people will experience mental illness at some point in their lives. Let’s Talk Australia aims to combat this by educating and encouraging people to ‘Head Out’ & get actively involved in their community.”

LETS TALK is a community driven initiative that arose in response to the rising death toll by suicide in Victoria’s Southwest region. Following the death of four young people in that year alone, and 16 people in total, a small group of people affected by the suicides came together to talk about this rising concern.

They will be stopping by Port Augusta on the way to Perth, so if you'd like more information about the group, click here, or check out the Facebook page here for updates on where they're travelling.
