MOVE FOR MENTAL HEALTH ONLINE HIKE
Join the MOVEMENT. Take the CHALLENGE. Be the CHANGE
Are you looking to challenge yourself mentally, physically and emotionally?
Do you want structure and movement away from the ’12-week’ bikini or shred programs? Something holistic and nourishing that builds you up from the inside out?
Are you wanting to create global impact around mental health, maternal health and perinatal depression and anxiety?
Are you called to be a part of something bigger? To align yourself with an authentic community that’s founded on social advocacy?
Or do you want to show yourself that you can. That you are strong and that you can make a stand for yourselves, and for those who can’t.
For so long, mental health has been the invisible illness. The thing we don’t talk about and in too many cases; the silent killer.
Did you know?
- 1 in 5 Australians experience mental health
- 1 in 5 new mothers experience perinatal depression and anxiety
- 1 in 10 new fathers experience perinatal depression and anxiety
- 8 Australians pass away from suicide every day
- For every death by suicide, it is estimated that as many as 30 people attempt to end their lives. Deaths by suicide in Australia occur in males 3 x higher than females.
What can I do?
