Mental Health This October

One Foot Forward is the perfect way to keep your office energised, moving, and connected, while raising money for crucial mental health research.

Walk (run or roll) 40, 60, 100 or 150 kilometres during Mental Health Month in October for the 1 in 5 people who experience symptoms of mental illness every year.

Simply register your workplace, and then invite your staff and colleagues to join you in solidarity and put One Foot Forward for mental health this October.

By walking during Mental Health Month, your team will be joining a community of incredible people walking in solidarity for Australians impacted by mental illness and suicide.

Benefits of taking part in One Foot Forward

Register your workplace for One Foot Forward and you'll engage your staff, improve employee health and wellbing, stay connected and become part of the conversation around mental health in the workplace.

Engaging your staff.

Invite your organisation to come together this October and take part in something new and exciting. Together, they'll become part of the mental health community, have fun with colleagues and challenge each other.

Improving employee health and wellbeing, by encouraging your staff to get up and walking!

The last year has been exceptionally hard on individual mental health, and physical exercise is so important to staying happy, healthy and positive! Your staff will love doing something that makes them feel great.

Become part of the conversation around mental health in the workplace.

Mental illness costs the Australian economy $12billion per year in reduced productivity and sickness related to mental health issues. Taking part in One Foot Forward is a fantastic way to change the conversation and encourage your staff to take their mental health seriously.

Keeping your team connected even while working from afar!

While much of Australia is still working from home, it's so important to keep your staff communicating and connected. Taking part in shared challenge is a great way to do this!
