Tribute for Shannas and our 1Armd Men

By Dani Eveleigh

We are participating in the Walk off the War Within in Darwin on 22 April, walking 20KM with a 20KG pack alongside current and previous Australian Defence Force members, Emergency Service Workers and members of the community to raise awareness of depression and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

The walk is a tribute to Nathan Shanahan, a former 1Armd Soldier and Firefighter in Darwin, Alice Springs and a member of the CFA in Victoria. Nathan lost his battle with the 'Black Dog' in December 2016.

This event is being held in Darwin, Alice Springs, Yulara and Ballarat and (on a smaller scale), it replicates the challenge Nathan set himself in 2015, walking from Mildura to Adelaide to actively combat his diagnosed major depressive disorder, anxiety and PTSD. Nathan’s aim then was also to reduce the stigma of mental illness and have other join him in the walk to combat the loneliness of living with such a psychological burden.

The walk has two objectives other than to memorialise: to raise awareness of depression and PTSD; and to publicise the many support services available to those suffering with Lifeline, the Black Dog Institute and Survivors of Suicide just three of the walk’s sponsors.

Nathan was a friend and colleague to our husbands, and we have seen and experienced all too much of the 'Black Dog' from both current and ex serving 1Armd men which is why we are walking in tribute for both Shannas and 1Armd men, seeking to raise awareness and also funds to support the much needed work to support Defence and Emergency Service personnel living with the 'black dog'.

Share the burden.

March as one.
