Facing Us Video Contest

Friday, July 8th, 2011

When I won the 1st place in the DBSA 2009 Facing Us Video Contest, I could not of envisioned/believed how much positive empowerment that little video would bring myself and others. The truth is… I thought after I got the prize money that would be the end of the video.

Not so fast!  That video helped me get to my first DBSA conference in 2010… Being there lead me to being able to do Stand -up comedy for the first time… I thought, “cool” nothing else could come from the video right…?

Cycling and Suicide

Mental Health Humor girl on bike clipartExercise to feel well! Here’s an option: How about bike riding? We all need some motivation to get off the couch, right? Exercising (or bike riding) for a good reason that could “SAVE” yourself or someone else…now that’s motivation!!

Have you heard of the National Non-Profit Suicide Prevention Agency, Suicide Awareness Voices of Education (SAVE)? (And, do you remember that 1979 inspiring movie, “Breaking Away”…the teen cycling team called “the Cutters” win the Indiana University Little 500 bike race?!) Well, Patrick “Cutter”…who is a Suicide PREVENTION Advocate, is trying to cross the U.S., by bicycle, from Alaska to Florida.  His goal….Get Money to SAVE!!

If cycling from Alaska to Florida is too short of a trip, how about cycling around the world?! (Think it may take longer than “80 days” however!) A British Columbia teacher living with Bipolar Disorder, Michael Schratter, hopes to cycle 25,000 miles across 6 continents and 30 countries.
