I'm swimming to save lives and support LGBTIQA+ young people

  • This is my second year diving

  • in for youth mental health

Did you know suicide is the leading cause of death for young people in Australia? And, that LGBTIQA+ young people are more likely to experience poor mental health?

I'm swimming to make sure young people in Australia have the mental health support they urgently need.

All funds raised will help young people feel better about today and the future, no matter what challenge they're facing. 

Reach Out helps people aged 25 and under. You can check out their resources for young people and the adults that support them here: au.reachout.com
