One Foot Forward:

In Your Workplace


October is Mental Health Month.

Get your workplace walking this October for Australians
living with mental illness.

Get Your Workplace Moving For
Mental Health This October

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

Walk (or run!) 20, 40, 60, 100 or 277 kilometres during Mental Health Month in October. Why 277kms? Because 277 people die from suicide every month in Australia.

You can achieve this goal as a team or as individuals (we can also set up teams within teams for you, just ask us).

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.

Register your workplace today and join the biggest walk for mental health!

For any questions or queries about how to get involved, contact our Partnerships team.

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!

You and your team will get a FREE Lanyard! 

When you register or join a workplace, you'll be able to claim an exclusive One Foot Forward Lanyard.* These lanyards are exclusive to our workplace community as a sign of your commitment to taking One Foot Forward for mental health.
