I am one face of mental health, I believe in the power of sharing stories with vulnerability to fight the stigma that surrounds mental health to unravel the shame to reduce the barriers to help seeking. I want to inspire people to discover what lights the fire within, to set them on the adventure of freedom
— Kylianne Farrell

Move For Mental Health is an initiative to empower people to move, get outside, play, experience, adventure and explore more to boost mental wellbeing and reduce the symptoms of mental illness.

We do this through education, advocacy apparel, speaking at events, project work and taking people on epic adventures.

The Move For Mental Health Initiative aims to;

Raise awareness for the power of movement and nature as protective strategies for mental wellbeing and to reduce the symptoms of mental illness.

Provide different opportunities for people to get moving and adventuring more to start living not just surviving.

Encourage exploration of movement that inspires and brings hope. For where there is hope there is LIFE!

Start conversations and give others the permission to speak up and seek help.

Reduce the stigma that prevents people from help seeking through story telling and education.

Fundraise to support not for profit organisations that are doing incredible work in this space.
