Nearly 8 Australians take their own life everyday – 6 of whom are men. Suicide is the leading cause of death in men aged 15 to 44. Despite this, 65% of people with common mental illnesses do not seek professional help.As part of our continued efforts in helping raise awareness for mental heath, we held a support to skills information session run by Marathon Health where we discussed mental health and how it is more common than we think.Check out our new uniforms by Trademutt that are conversation starters about mental health. We hope these new additions will encourage people to speak up.
There is no shame in asking for help from friends or a professional.
