Take a Walk for Awareness on Sunday 9 October 2022 and join the BIGGEST walk for mental health!

Organised by the Mental Awareness Foundation and supported by Tessa Group, Walk for Awareness is the official opening event for Queensland Mental Health Week 2022. It involves bringing people together in a friendly and safe environment where issues of mental health can be discussed openly with friends, family, and supportive strangers.

There are two options available to participate. You can walk 9kms around the Brisbane river or participate virtually and walk from anywhere.

The morning will begin with an inspiring opening ceremony, where attendees will remember those lost to depression and mental illness and honour those continuing to live with mental distress. There will be a quick warm-up and stretch, and then walkers will be encouraged to take off on a walk in their local area or at their nominated start time at the physical event.

Walk for Awareness is a fun, rewarding, and inspiring COVID-safe community event that is wheelchair and pet-friendly.

Help spread the message of suicide prevention and raise funds for mental health organisations working on the frontline!

Registration is essential. Register now at www.walkforawareness.org.au.
