Paul Rudd takes part in One Foot Forward every year:

"I went through a bad patch with my mental health when I hurt my back and I needed a lot of time off to recover. I had limited mobility, so I started to lose contact with the outside world. Then I lost interest in doing anything at all. My mind just clouded all positive thoughts.

It took me two years to rebuild myself. So when I heard about One Foot Forward I decided to take part. I wanted to connect with other people who had been through something similar.

“The community is a big, supportive family.”

To anyone thinking about taking part in One Foot Forward, I say ‘Do it!’. You get to enjoy the fresh air and get your blood moving. It’s also a fun community thing. Above all, it helps raise funds and awareness that help is out there if you need support for your mental health.”

As someone who has been walking their own mental health path since I was a teenager, it’s only fitting that I participate in raising funds and awareness. I’m walking this October for Australians affected by mental illness and suicide. You are not alone.

Your worth is not determined by your ability to always be ok. You are worthy, you always have been, even when you are struggling. Never feel ashamed to ask for help, because when you are ready there is a community of support waiting for you.
