About Our Challenge

In June, our Team is taking part in The Push-Up Challenge. We are going to help shine the spotlight on the number of lives lost to suicide in 2020 and raise awareness of mental health. Feel free to join us or support a team member who is taking part. Help us push for better mental health.

A word from the cap:

Losing a loved one from suicide is devastating and  increasingly common. So many I know have been impacted by suicide in one way or another. I have lost someone I loved, friends, family & colleagues to suicide. Through my paramedic work I also see the increasing rate of mental health cases happening daily. In June I will be completing 3,139 push-ups in 24 days to raise awareness and funds for mental health. Please support me as I #pushforbetter .

Things need to change. Mental health awareness & treatments need to improve and conversations about mental health normalised. Mental health services also need better funding.

Let's be the change. If you can join the challenge JOIN. If you can't participate then DONATE. If you can't afford to donate then check in on someone you love & start the CONVERSATION #speakupforlee

Supporting Lifeline

Lifeline Australia is one of the beneficiaries of this year’s The Push Up Challenge. Together, Lifeline and The Push Up Challenge aim to raise awareness about mental health and the impact of suicide on Australians. Participants will take on 3,139 push-ups across 24 days in June, putting the spotlight on the tragic number of lives lost to suicide in Australia in 2020.

 

All funds raised will go towards mental health and crisis support services, helping to break stigmas and provide hope to those struggling with their mental health, so no one is going through their darkest moments alone.

Hi my friend, you don't know me but I am moved and inspired by your authenticity, your doggy, your videos and your travels too. I lost my partner, soul mate and the father of my son, to suicide 25 years ago when I was only 23. The effects of grief, trauma and devastation from this remains dominant in my life. During those times my partner struggled and since I have always known I can call lifeline. They were one of the only places he could find help back then in a crisis, where he and I would not feel judged or in danger. Fortunately much as changed in the world since around mental health and I hope there are more resources and a deeper, kinder understanding. I still appreciate Lifeline and know they have saved many, many, many lives. They have helped me through dark times, even though I have never been suicidal. I am glad you are doing this for them, for all those that need it a little light, for Lee and for yourself and Occy too. Keeping a positive legacy going is so important isn't it? Sending gentle gratitude, love and kindness to you. Travel well, Katiebell.
