MAF is taking a walk on Sunday 9th October – let’s join them!!

Take part in Australia’s Largest Mental Health Walk – Walk for Awareness Supported by Tessa Group.
This is an opportunity for the community to come together to support each other, to break the silence on mental illness and to contribute to the funding of programs that are making a difference on the front line with mental health issues


If there was ever a time for us to come together for some good times, laughter, and love, it’s now. There are two options available to participate. A virtual walk, so that you can walk wherever you want, or, you can still choose to join the physical event in Brisbane.

The morning will be live-streamed to the nation, beginning with an inspiring opening ceremony, where we remember those lost to depression and mental illness and honour those continuing the battle. We will have a quick warm-up and stretch, then we encourage walkers to take off on a 9km walk in your local area or at your nominated start time at the physical event.

We encourage you to participate in this event anywhere in Australia and take on the walk in your area.  Where possible, include some iconic local areas and share photos with the rest of the Walk for Awareness community, showing the amazing impact you’ve just made in the quest to raise awareness of depression and mental illness.

Walk for Awareness is an event that involves bringing people together in a friendly and safe environment where issues of mental health can be discussed openly with friends, family, and supportive strangers. We believe the matters surrounding suicide should be discussed, not hidden.

Let’s take a walk Australia!
