Jacqueline's Story

I walked the track for my son Dillon who tried to commit suicide late last year suffering a psychotic episode. He has since been diagnosed with schizophrenia and thankfully is still with us. I walked with 38 other Trekkers leaders and porters in September this year as part of a fundraiser and awareness raising about suicide prevention for Mates in Construction. It was one of the toughest things I’ve ever done physically, mentally and emotionally. In the process I refound myself, my will and the need to keep on going for my beautiful son. Best thing I’ve ever done!
