This year continues to bring hardship for people around the country with lockdowns and isolation keeping families and friends apart. It’s more important than ever to focus on the mental health of yourself and of your loved ones. Focus on the little things that get you through, physical exercise, belonging to something outside of yourself – whether that be a sporting club or a friendship group or a charitable cause – and check in with your loved ones.
But more inspiring than that, were the personal stories shared, the life-long bonds made and the commitment to bring this profound experience back into their daily lives.
At Breakthrough, we talk a lot about family – our team, and our supporters – and we could not do the vital work we do without the support of our family. That’s why this issue is dedicated to those that support us.
