Sue Greenwood (1948 - 2019) was one of the foundational members of BIG (Bayside Initiatives Group) and she has been a driving force behind the organisation since it’s inception in the late 90s. After 20 years of service towards building Queensland’s first Peer-Operated Mental Health Service, we now must sadly say goodbye.
Sue passed away peacefully, surrounded by her family and loved ones at 5:00am on Wednesday morning, 4th September 2019. She leaves behind her a legacy of unconditional kindness, family, friendship, reverence and respect of those who experience mental health concerns, and the dream of a mental health community run entirely by people with a lived experience of mental health recovery... a dream she lived to see become a reality.
Her sons David and Sean have requested that instead of flowers and gifts, donations be made to support BIG RED - the next chapter for the BIG Peer Support Community.
