Support Our Walk for Mental Health Research

Did you know that 1 in 5 people experience symptoms of mental illness each year? In fact, every day in Australia, 8 people will die from suicide.

Mental illness can be debilitating and can have a devastating impact on not only those living with it, but those around them. 

But this October, we’ll be putting one foot forward to make a difference to the lives of people touched by mental illness and suicide. 

We're fundraising to raise money for life-changing research into treatment and prevention of mental illness, as well as vital support services. 

Support our challenge and help change the lives of people living with mental illness.
