Driving through the mountains of Brisbane with Drive Against Depression
Staff journalist Zak Adkins reflects on the very first Drive Against Depression Brisbane event and took to the hills with mental health awareness front of mind and spirit.
Up and away, I was off. Straight into the car with coffee lining my stomach and sunglasses covering my weary eyes.
The day had finally arrived for Drive Against Depression’s first-ever Brisbane drive event, and I couldn’t wait to meet up with our group of passionate locals for a drive through the mountains outside of Brisbane and up to the picturesque town of Maleny for lunch.
But this wouldn’t just be about getting behind the wheel and pointing the bonnet at the nearby mountain tops: the journey was about people, not what car they drove.
