Business and its association to community

Giving back to the community is an important part of my business plan and one area I feel strongly about is Mental Health.

In my own experience I remember the mental and physical abuse experienced in the school system and at home.  Although not intentional, the constant abuse had a profound impact on my well-being while growing up.

There were no real services available to young people until my later years in secondary school, sadly seeking help in the area of mental health was frowned upon in those days.

Today is a very different era, thankfully there are many great support groups for those in need and mental health is openly talked about in our community and at schools.

Headspace is a not for profit charity foundation that assists young people who require assistance in the area of mental health.
