Share a shaka and let a mate know your thinking of him.

Why Support Us?

From the oceans to the hospital wards, mental illness is creeping in. Share this gift of solidarity and help spread the word because that’s all it could take to change someone’s life.

One in five (20%) Australians aged 16-85 experience a mental illness in any year.

Due to COVID-19, the emerging mental health crisis will be far worse.

The onset of mental illness is typically around mid-to-late adolescence and Australian youth (18-24 years old) have the highest prevalence of mental illness than any other age group.

The Barwon Health Foundation asks you to ‘shaka up for mental health’.

By supporting the Barwon Health Foundation, you are helping to enhance the health of Geelong. Your generosity provides compassionate care, for the people of our region, through all stages of life and circumstance. The Barwon Health Foundation aims to create happier, healthier lives by investing in the lifesaving and life-changing work of Barwon Health.

All the money raised is supporting mental health awareness within the Barwon Health Foundation.

Send or share this simple gesture "a shaka" and let people know you’re thinking of them.
