Let’s use this Mental Health Month to drive change.

Sep 30

  This month of October is designated Mental Health month. After 40 years of working with people in trouble I genuinely feel that support for people with mental health issues is today worse than ever. It seems to me that the 70’s and 80’s were times of great hope. It was then that the “new psychology” was highlighting lots of issues and beginning to understand...

Anonymous no more – An important lesson I’ve learned

This past week has been really hard.  I have been struggling.  Next week I am off to Cambodia to work with the trafficked and abused kids there.  I always come back after that with PTSD of a kind as what I come across over there is so traumatizing.  Not that I am a stranger to the abuse of children.  I have been working with them (or rather loving them) since...

Albie turns 100

At this time of year, as the temperatures drop I am always asking people to spare a thought for the homeless.  As you know, my Exodus Foundation’s Loaves & Fishes Free Restaurant provides almost a thousand meals daily to Sydney’s homeless, poor and needy.  At this time as year as well as meals, blankets are the order of the day.
