One Woman Wandering

My name is Tracey and I’m a 52 year old grandmother of two beautiful grand babies.

I am walking around Australia to raise awareness and remove the stigma of Mental Illness. I hope to raise $50 000 to support The Black Dog Institute.

Everyone knows someone suffering mental illness, whether you are aware of it or not. Mental Illness can be overwhelming, crippling and isolating.

Having battled depression most of my life I know how dark life can become but I’ve been lucky enough to have a great family and support network.

Almost losing my son to suicide last year and seeing how very lucky we were that he did not become another statistic gives me renewed purpose to do my bit.
