Today is World Mental Health Day. That means it has been 11 years since we put the words Cars For Hope on the side of our Honda Integra and went racing to tell the story of our friend Annabel. Was it messed up that Annabel didn’t want to get better? That she didn’t want to...
Cars For Hope Showcased Car Meet
Today marks 9 years of Cars For Hope. There have been some remarkable things that have happened along this journey to drive the end of mental health stigma, but I’d like to share this story. This photograph is me at 19 at a car meet on the rooftop of Fox Studios in Sydney with my...
Cars For Hope Wear Orange Self Injury Awareness Month
My name is Berty (I’m the one on the far right). I went to school at Cecil Hills High School. I have a best friend… at least I used to. Cecil Hills is just a place somewhere in the world. Maybe it’s a lot like your world, maybe it’s nothing like it. But if you...
CarsForHope-ClubITR-BBQ-Meet
A new friend was asking me some questions about Cars For Hope last week, and she asked what’s surprised me the most over the last couple years. I thought for a minute because it’s a good question, and because there’s been a lot of surprises. I told her that the most surprising part has been to see...
It was pretty cool to wake up this morning and read an article from Car Throttle based on #THEORANGEEFFECT EOMM for Self Injury Awareness Day.

Dear Annabel
I remember the day my phone rang. I was on the train on my way home from university. I had received a few messages from my friend Annabel. But there was one message from her that really stood out. The way I see it is everyone is asking me to push through all of this...

Shane Koyczan was bullied a lot when he was a kid. So he took that pain and made this stunning video with the help of some amazingly talented people. He wrote “To This Day”, a spoken word poem, to further explore the profound and lasting impact that bullying can have on an individual. He believes...
Cars For Hope
It seems like it was only yesterday when I wrote this short message about how we are human. About how we wake to the human condition of living with problems of pain. How we would have encountered battles in the year 2012. Little or big. We would all have faced up to a few battles....

I’ve personally known Brandon since the 7th grade. We actually went to high school together for that matter. But as many have experienced in their lifetime, things happen, people move away and sometimes you just lose contact with your friends and family. My stark memory of Brandon was that he was a Rugby League player...
