In the Community

Kai Eardley Foundation

I am very proud to promote and support charities who are doing some amazing work. One such charity is called the Kai Eardley Foundation, here's what they are about. Out of tragedy came an opportunity for change. The aim of the The Kai Eardley Foundation is to create postivie change for the mental health of our youth and to honour the life of Kai Eardley,

Kai, a 20-year-old East Fremantle boy with a lot to live for, ended his life in July 2016 after struggling with anxiety and depression. If this endeavour prevents just one more tragic death to suicide, then our goal will have been achieved.

Suicide is now the biggest killer of men aged between 19 and 45. Twelve men are lost to suicide every day. Our hope is to reduce this number. Having lost Kai, I will always wonder what could I have done differently and my only conclusion is that there is little else I could have done in July last year when Kai reached crisis point. I wish there had been some early intervention available before he reached that point of no return.
