DORF AND FRIENDS DEPART ON 1,000KM MENTAL HEALTH JOURNEY

A Central Coast man will walk 1,000 kilometres to raise awareness for mental health.

Bryan Dorfling and his supporters set off from Budgewoi this morning heading into the bush at Lake Munmorah.

In one day, they did the equivalent of a half-marathon.

They say the trek will help to break down stigma surrounding mental illness and encourage people to seek help.

And if you need immediate assistance, you can call Lifeline on 13 11 14.
