Why?

Mental Health is just as important to your overall wellbeing as your Physical Health… Although it’s often overlooked. With there now being more than 5,200,000 Australians suffering from Mental Illness, they need our support more than ever. Did you know;

8 Australians Die by Suicide every day

Suicide claims more young lives (15-44yrs) than Cancer or Road Accidents

What's One Foot Forward Funding?

The funds raised from One Foot Forward will support research into early detection, prevention and treatment of mental health disorders, as well as funding vital support services for those most at risk. These are a few of the support services;

C-19 Resources

But, why Walk?

Walking can lead to a reduction in Stress & Anxiety by releasing certain chemicals in our brains.

Physical Exercise as simple as walking can lead to a better night's sleep.

Walking releases endorphins in your brain which reduce negative moods.
