ABOUT $20,000 was raised for zero2hero at the Golf Memorial for Rhys at Marri Park Golf Course on June 4.

Zero2hero promotes mental health and wellbeing from the early years.

The focus includes raising awareness of mental illnesses and other causes that may lead to suicide, including anxiety, depression and bullying.

The golf day was instigated by family and friends of Rhys Connor.

Rhys was just 25 years old when he took his own life.

Since then his parents, Pete and Anita Miller, continue to fight for those with mental health issues, for the stigma to cease and to put pressure on the Government to put money into the mental health system.

“It’s through organisations such as zero2hero, who are a self-funded community group, who are making a difference to help in our community,” Mr Miller said.
