The Ride Of Your Life

My name is Steve Bisley. I am an Australian actor.You might remember me from my role as ‘Jim Goose’ the motorcycle cop in Mad Max’. I live near the cliffs in the eastern suburbs of Sydney, Australia. It is a beautiful part of the world.The pacific ocean rolls endlessly towards our rugged coastline and whales can be seen on their migration from a spot just at the end of my street. Since i have lived here in the past 7 years there have been at least 20 suicides from that very spot. I hear the helicopters come and settle into their thunderous low hover and i know there has been another lost soul.
It was the day late last year when someone had leapt to their death, that I decided we  needed to draw more attention to a problem that takes more than twice the national road toll each and every year. We do have campaigns like 'RU OK?' and that's great ' but we need to do more, much much more, to shine a light into the dark places where this affliction hides. So to do my bit, i'm going to ride a motorcycle around Australia to help raise both awareness and funds to aid the understanding and prevention of suicide. We will be encouraging people in cities and towns along the route to help us with fundraising events. We will be webcasting along the journey and we will shoot a documentary along the way. We need to open up the conversation, so the people who suffer from mental illness can feel that they are not only understood but are truely supported by us all. I've been to the dark places and i know what its like to suffer in silence. Please make a donation if you can. Stay safe. Steve.
