As a General Practitioner I see the impact of mental illness on individuals, families, and society on a daily basis.
Unfortunately, it is all too common for people to be increasingly disconnected and burdened by the weight of their lives. They suffer alone. There are many people in crisis whose lives could be saved or improved given the opportunity to receive trained counselling.
The CCCline has been, and continues to be, a vital connection for those people in need of support. It is a pleasure and privilege to be a part of the 2017 CCC Bikathon to raise awareness of the line and spread the word that there is help available to those in their darkest hour.
