Get Silent. Get Heard.
I recently lent my voice to a new campaign from Soften The Fck Up – an initiative to address the high rate of suicide and mental health issues amongst young men. They do great work challenging the idea that men don’t speak up and look after their health.
The campaign encourages people to go 24 hours without talking on September 17th, 2013 to demonstrate that not talking is much harder. You can sign up to join the campaign here.
P.S and of course if you need someone to talk to Lifeline are there to help, Kids Help Line if you’re 25 or under and Beyond Blue have heaps of great information and resources too.
