Flex some muscle for Mental health: The Push-Up Challenge
The Push-Up Challenge is raising money to support headspace, National Youth Mental Health Organisation, which is an organisation working to strengthen the mental health and wellbeing of young Australians. The Push-Up Challenge started in 2018 and aims to raise awareness of mental health in Australia. This year, The Push-Up Challenge highlights the devastating number of Australian lives lost to suicide in 2018. 3,046 push-ups for 3,046 lives lost to suicide Take on The Push-Up Challenge to help make a real difference to millions of young people living with mental health challenges. Mental health issues are not limited to young Australians. Around 75 per cent of mental illnesses occur for the first time before a person turns 25. By supporting The Push-Up Challenge, you're supporting an organisation that addresses the unique barriers young people face to accessing mental health support. It all began on the 11th of May but you can catch up. You'll be completing 3,046 push-ups in 21 days. The target amount per day varies and whilst you can catch up if you fall behind, you can't get ahead. Leading up to the event headspace released their Sweet Online Tracker which allows you to track your push-ups and see how others in your team are going too. The Tracker is super easy to use and no download is required. It is available through the website. Whilst fundraising is an optional part of this event, they do encourage it.
Your contribution will help headspace to continue promoting the importance of help-seeking, breaking down the stigma of mental ill health and making sure every young Australian knows they are not alone.
