On Sunday morning, 7th October, come and join other passionate people to launch Queensland Mental Health Week celebrations in Brisbane.  The 8th annual Walk for Awareness is Australia’s biggest charity walk dedicated to raising awareness about mental health and suicide prevention.

The amazingly uplifting morning includes community-based mental health service provider information; great entertainment including live music and a jumping castle and face painting for the kids, and a yummy selection of breakfast meals and coffee.

The scenic 8km River Loop walk can be undertaken by people of all ages and is wheelchair friendly. Children under 13 are free.  You can bring your furry friends.

Register as an individual or create a team by inviting family, friends and/or work colleagues to join you.   It’s a wonderful opportunity to walk in memory of someone who’s lost their life to suicide, or to support someone who’s currently battling depression, anxiety or other mental health conditions.

The event removes ‘silence, stigma and shame’ that traditionally surrounds suicide and mental health.  It’s a festive environment that connects participants and encourages meaningful conversations reinforcing:

  • Without good mental health there is no health.
  • It’s not weak to ask for help if you are struggling.
  • It’s okay speak to a person if you suspect they’re experiencing mental health struggles or suicide thoughts.
  • Most suicides are preventable.

$30.00 registration. Children under 13 are free.
