'This year I have chose 'Mental Illness Fellowship South Australia (Mifsa)’.  1 in 5 people will be affected by mental health in their lifetime, I feel its important to support those experiencing mental health issues and those that care for them.  The theme 'Real or Surreal?' lends itself to this theme as the reality of ones thoughts may be surreal to another.  Its important to raise awareness and acceptance of mental illness that affects so many.'
