Help me create a mentally healthier world
This December, Savvy Survivor Red, Green, Blue and Yellow tribes will be battling it out in fitness challenges in support of mental health and the Black Dog Institute.
Suicide is the leading causing of death of Australians between the ages of 15-44 years; an awful statistic impacting the lives of many friends, families and even whole communities like my home of Gundagai. We are moving forward in creating a society where mental illness is treated with the same level of concern, immediacy and seriousness as physical illness by having conversations and raising awareness. However, these initiatives are only the first steps in helping those with mental illness and saving lives.
With your help, we want to support the Black Dog Institute this year so they can implement evidence-based strategies and interventions identified as having an immediate impact on mental health and suicide rates.
