  You're only Human (Billy Joel) 
This is a great song that says so much about the 'human experience'. We all have our 'ups & downs'; we make mistakes and we should learn from these. One thing is for sure; 
you 'never give up'.....no matter the problem you're confronted with, stay positive and that 'old 2nd wind WILL come along'

Autism - Raising awareness

 

 
 

Autism is a neurodevelopmental disorder of a complex nature and whose origin remains unclear. Considered to be primarily of an hereditary nature, the genetic components are yet to be clearly identified. Diagnostic improvements have unearthed a greater prevalence in society but much more is needed to enable effective treatment and therapies; and more importantly, support those families who are 'battling' bravely with children suffering Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Please support the continued research into Autism and the much needed help for those involved.

        Sports Stars' Depression 'Rampant' - Kennett 

Depression & other 'Mood Disorders' are not as uncommon amongst our elite athletes as one might believe. Many of our past & current players have experienced these illnesses; to varying degrees and with differing outcomes. Their personal experiences serve to remind us all that mental illness can strike anyone at anytime. Below are but some of those whose stories have been covered by the press. Please click on the name of the player for the related news article.
