October is Mental Health Month. Did you know that 1 in 5 people experience symptoms of mental illness each year in Australia and that 8 people die from suicide in Australia every day? Mental illness can be debilitating and can have a devastating impact on not only those living with it, but those around them.
Funds raised will help Black Dog Institute put ground-breaking new mental health tools that work into the hands of people who need them.
Bek has committed to walk 40km in October to raise awareness and hopefully start some conversations so that people can talk about how they feel and remove the stigma that surrounds mental health and know that they are not alone.
This is an important issue that is very close to my heart. And walking / fitness is such a good way to be kind to yourself and look after your mental health in turn.
Elite Building Services has pledged to donate $500 to the Black Dog Institute from our profits of all unconditional contracts signed in the month of October. We are very pleased to announce that we signed a Building Contract on 1 October and will let you know our total donation at the end of the month!
If anyone else is doing this walk, please get in touch as we’d love to team up.
