Rob Tierney is an inspirational Australian man, who’s just launched an international fundraider to raise AUS$24,000 to reduce male suicide in Australia. He’ll be tandem skydiving (as will a second person, yet to be decided) from 12,000 feet onto a beach near Gold Coast, on 8 June, the day before the conference starts. Please donate what you can afford. Thanks.

Rob is an Australian man (57) who has been to hell and back (due to alcoholism, depression, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder from Air Traffic Control whistleblowing, as well as coping with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME), also known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). He was loved back to life by other men (and a few women) who could see that he was worth saving at a time when he thought he was a burden on the community and better off dead.

These men freely gave of their time and helped him daily over many years to have a better quality of life. He would now like to give back what he was so freely given by organizing the Skydive and Fundraiser.
