What skills did you learn from being part of the Student Ambassador Program?
I gained skills in how to better support those around me who may be going through a hard time with their mental health.
What was the highlight of the program for you?
Building a solid foundation at our school to openly talk about mental health and suicide prevention.
Why was it important for you and your school to be part of The Push-Up Challenge? I
Because of how deeply our school has been impacted by suicide. It gave an opportunity to have proper resources to support and educate students as well as do something beneficial for everyone's mental health. It was important for me to be a part of the challenge because of my personal bereavement by suicide. Breaking down the stigma of mental health and suicide is something I'm incredibly passionate about and this challenge gave me an amazing outlet to learn and support organisations that need more recognition and support, like Lifeline.
