On the 5th May 2012, Jenny Rayner and her family were tragically faced with the impact of mental illness, when their daughter Lucy took her own life aged just 22.
This life-changing event inspired the family to begin campaigning to help address the mental health challenges faced by young adults.
Lucy Marie Rayner was a beautiful, sensitive soul, a daughter, a sister, a girlfriend, a grand-daughter, a cousin, an auntie, a best friend, a helper, a hard worker, a diva, a perfectionist, a wild child, a risk taker, a party animal, the list goes on… took her own life in 2012, aged 22.
No one saw it coming, it was a total surprise to everyone.
