How Cycling Can Impact Mental Health & Prevent Suicide | Special Guest Nick Frendo

G!RO Podcast

"GLOBALLY 1 MAN DIES EVERY MINUTE FROM SUICIDE. I now want to show people that talking works and you’re not alone." Nick Frendo has been a friend of G!RO since we first opened our doors in 2013. With his travel company he hosted a couple of trips for us to Girona, and have run some rides and events with him locally over the years. However in 2017, Nick revealed publicly that in 2016 he had attempted to take his own life - twice. Since then, Nick has become a Mental Health Ambassador for Movember, and has a vision and passion to use his experience and journey to inspire people to get help before they reach a crisis point. Nick founded the AFGO project and more recently Ascnd.cc with a goal to raise money and awareness for mental health and suicide, through rides, challenges, content & conversation.  Host Jordan Addison sits down with Nick Frendo to talk more in detail about his journey and what drives him on to further the work he, Movember and Ascnd.cc are doing.  Having known Nick for many years, this is a great conversation, and a timely one. Through Nick's journey which has led to this point, it is clear he has a clarity & resolve about what he and Ascnd can do, and the real impact it can have. The statistics around Suicide is shocking, and more people should know this and talk about it openly in the hope that someone finds the confidence to speak up and not go down that dark path. We commend Nick for his efforts and we stand with him in this cause to prevent suicides and champion mental health. Chapeau Nick. So sit back, grab a brew & enjoy!

Someone is always there for you & talking works!  https://ascnd.cc/useful-links VIDEO : World Suicide Prevention Day 2020: Conversations. https://youtu.be/XVjuZvUIAfk Useful Links :  https://ascnd.cc/useful-links Nick Frendo : https://www.instagram.com/nickfrendo/ Ascnd.cc :  https://ascnd.cc/ https://www.instagram.com/ascnd.cc/ G!RO :  http://www.girocycles.com https://www.instagram.com/girocycles/ Jordan Addison  https://www.instagram.com/jordanaddison/
