The international distress signal

Our simple message is that if you are struggling its ok to send out a distress signal.  Or simply put:

It's ok to ask for help 

While I know this is an over simplification of very complex issue, its about starting conversations. The reality is that if you are struggling it is a massive thing to reach out.  The challenge is that if someone asks for help it is important that we look to be there.  It might be as simple as listening, giving a hug or helping someone to find the resources they need.  


Below is information on out mental health bike ride and If you are struggling there are some resources at the bottom of the page.
