Queensland Mental Health Week’s Walk!

The morning begins with an inspiring opening ceremony, where we remember those lost to depression and mental illness and honour those continuing the battle. After a quick warm up and stretch, walkers will take off on an 8km walk around Brisbane’s winding river and beautiful scenery.

As you make your way towards the Finish Line, you’ll walk over Brisbane’s finest landmarks ‘The Story Bridge’, where you will be cheered on by onlooking supporters and finally greeted with high energy celebrations of your epic walk and amazing impact you’ve just made in the quest to raise awareness of depression and mental illness.

Walk for Awareness is an event that involves bringing people together in a friendly environment where the issues of mental health can be discussed openly with friends, family and supportive strangers. We believe the matters surrounding suicide should be discussed, not hidden.
