Hi my name is Richelle,

I’m on a mission to raise 10k for Headspace Australia and raise awareness for mental health. 

Headspace help support our youth between the ages of 12-25yrs through over 100 centers across the nation. Supporting in Mental health, physical and sexual health, vocational and social support and drug and alcohol support.

As a woman, a single mum and a mother to a daughter who suffers mental health issues.
supporting a foundation like headspace means that my daughter like many others will have a safe place to find support in her youth. 

 

Why am I fundraising and how can you help me?

Mental illness is a silent killer.  The symptoms and signs are not always visible or easy to recognise and in fact, individuals struggling with mental health conditions may be the people you would least expect. More than 75 per cent of mental health issues develop before a person turns 25 and suicide remains the leading cause of death for Australians aged between 15 and 44. Approximately 1 in 5 Australians are suffering from mental illness in any given year. This has to change! You can help bring these struggles out of the dark and join me in tearing down the stigma and discrimination surrounding one of our leading health issues.  By donating to my fundraising campaign you’re helping me to highlight the importance of empowering one another to feel safe and supported in asking for help.

Funds raised throughout this project will be granted to headspace https://headspace.org.au/
