This September, Blake will put himself through a challenge not near as harsh as suffering from a mental illness. For the whole 30 days of the month, Blake will be running a half marathon a day (21.1km) to assist in mental health awareness and education. At some point in our lives, we have all known someone who has suffered from depression or anxiety, not sure how to handle it or not sure how to help, we have all known someone who has tragically taken their own life, losing their own battle. At least 6 Australians lose their lives to mental illness each day! Lets make a difference, lets obliterate the stigma, lets share our stories, lets speak up.
LIVIN is a fully registered Charity which raises awareness for Mental Health and Suicide Prevention. Unlike other charities, past and present, we use fashion, social media and well respected profiles that connect with the cause, to break down the stigma and get people talking about mental health. As a result, people will become more open and comfortable when discussing their mental illness and therefore speaking up and seeking help sooner hence saving lives.
