Let’s nail depression

A Kayak Journey from Port Macquarie to The Entrance raising funds for Men’s Sheds.

In October this year, Dave Betts is undertaking a kayak paddle from Port Macquarie to The Entrance in his kayak–aptly called “The Hammer”, to raise money for Men’s Sheds. A journey of over 300km, Dave is aiming to raise in excess of $50,000 for the Sheds at The Entrance and Port Macquarie.

Depression is often silent, it impairs the way a person would normally function, including being able to communicate their feelings openly. Depression stops people from doing the things they normally would. The longer it lasts, the deeper into depression they go and the more silent and lonely their world becomes.

This is why, quite often, the way out of depression is in doing anything that gives you a sense of purpose. Mingara’s Construction Manager, Dave Betts, understands entirely because he’s been there.

While it’s an ongoing, perhaps, never ending process, Dave is now finding ways to help others battling the silence and through his own journey, Dave has found a love of kayaking, with exercise a key in helping people manage anxiety, depression and mental health in general.
