Jerry Farsoun completed his trip around Australia by powerchute on 15.12.08. Aimed at improving community understanding of depression and encouraging help-seeking, Farsoun's successful trip was reported on by Carolyn Webb for The Age - 'Flight of fancy around Australia has a serious message' 16.12.08.


Based on a warm reception from readers, StigmaWatch contacted Carolyn to congratulate her on the article as a contribution to suicide prevention - and some welcome good news for the mental health sector. 


The readers who contacted StigmaWatch were glad to hear about a positive initiative for mental health and the success achieved by Jerry Farsoun. Highlighting the good work and importance of helpline services was a key feature of the piece.
