Gold Coast Charity Cruise On the 2nd of November Lifes Good held its very first Beyond Blue charity cruise. A special public cruise set up to aid in the raising of funds for Beyond Blue.
The event was a huge success with all tickets selling out with donations in excess of $1200 raised so far, we would like to thank everyone who came on board and enjoyed our first Charity cruise.
My Story: All my youthful life I felt invincible and I expected to become extremely successful and rich. Unfortunately, during my middle age, I experienced anxiety for many, many years. I tried very hard to recover for a considerable time and felt that I had no one to talk to, as I was so ashamed. For over a year I did not even understand what I was feeling or why. I had always been a very active and positive person during work and play. I now realise that acceptance of a mental health condition is the first step to recovery.
While I was recovering, I decided to start a private cruise business. I also had a vision to help other people who also could not discuss their feelings – this is how the name ‘We Are All In The Same Boat’ originated. I then purchased the vessel called Life’s Good.
what is Beyond Blue beyond blue works to raise awareness of depression, anxiety and suicide prevention, reduce the stigma surrounding these issues and to encourage people to seek support when they need it.
Through strong partnerships with academics, governments, non-government, corporate, service providers and the community, beyondblue promotes good mental health across a range of population groups and places in which people live, learn, work and play. Our work in different communities and settings is detailed below and provides information on our programs, research and resources.
