Simon’s Disappointments:

Because he thought he had let down the LGBTIQ community and people who had supported him for years by not making the Olympic squad, Simon was initially hesitant to speak with DNA. However, he wanted to discuss the sadness and mental health issues that many LGBTIQ person experience. Before relocating to London, Simon represented Australia in international bobsled competitions and received his training in Canada. He made friends with famous people, lived with his partner, and ran a prosperous business there.

He is not alone; the National LGBT Health Alliance estimates that 30% of LGBTIQ people have struggled with depression in the past three years. Men commit six out of every eight suicides in Australia, according to the Australian Men’s Health Forum.

The Australian Bureau of Statistics’ most recent numbers paints a bleak picture. They demonstrate that suicide is on the rise, with 10% more men dying by suicide in 2017 than in 2016.
