The Push-Up Challenge started in 2018 and aims to raise awareness of mental health in Australia. This year, The Push-Up Challenge highlights the devastating number of Australian lives lost to suicide in 2017.
The goal is to help reduce the number of Australian lives being lost to suicide by increasing awareness of mental ill health in the community and raising funds for headspace.
45 per cent of Australians will experience a mental health issue at some point in their life
Mental health issues are not limited to young Australians. You may have had a personal experience with mental ill health or might have known someone going through a tough time. Get behind a cause that affects almost every second Australian.
Around 75 per cent of mental illnesses occur for the first time before a person turns 25. By supporting The Push-Up Challenge, you’re supporting an organisation that addresses the unique barriers young people face to accessing mental health support.
Your contribution will help headspace to continue promoting the importance of help-seeking, breaking down the stigma of mental ill health and making sure every young Australian knows they are not alone.
