Mental Health affects many people all around the world, not just in our backyard! Mental Health will affect most of us, if not all of us, at some point in our lives! . . You can put your blinders on if you choose to, but it won’t change the fact that you will most likely suffer some form of Mental Health issue/problem/disorder/Illness in your life time. . . So join the #keepingitreal movement, Rise up, and speak up with us! . . Remember, It Ain’t Weak To Speak!😉✌🏼💚 . @lachanceski @lachanceski . #jointhemvmt #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillnesses #mentaldisorders #stress #anxiety #depression #addiction #suicide #itsreal #riseup #speakup #letstalk #coffeewithjoe #podcast #realtalk #nobs #itaintweaktospeak #mentalhealth #dontsufferalone #sicknotweak #endthestigma
With Australia Day just around the corner im setting a challenge out there to all my friends in the social media world! It's time to put aside the politics and get back to our roots and what makes auzzies... well... auzzies! I challenge everyone this Saturday the 26th of January to take 5 minutes and check up on a mate! Be it someone close to you, someone you haven't talked to in years, someone you constantly see having a tough time but are unsure how you can help. Reach out, say G'Day, invite someone to join you for a snag on the barbie or a lamb chop!! Whatever you're willing to do but make sure this Australia Day you be a little selfless, bring back what it means to be an auzzie and take care of your mates ✌✌👌👌💙 #australiaday2019 #livin #itaintweaktospeak #mateship #auzzieauzzieauzzie #ruok
A great initiative carrying a very important message. There are people to talk to and it will make a huge difference! Repost from @dragonausnz , What does a normal surf trip look like? Good waves, good people and a couple of filmers? We wanted to challenge the barriers of a surf trip and add a twist! We recently brought together Dragon athletes from all over Australia and NZ to spend 3 days searching for peaks along the East Coast of Aus. With the help of @livinorg , the Dragon team also took part in a LIVINwell session to help promote positive conversations about mental health and educate our team.

Australian Youth Water Polo Comp 2019 #AYWPC in Brisbane Week 2, Day 5 Weds 23 Jan L16 @ Somerville 11am Lost 4-7 v Barras M16A Red @ BAC Outdoor 1 12.30 Won 9-1 v Hunter A (SF 5-8) M16B Black @ BAC Outdoor 1 10.30 Lost 3-5 v Cronulla Black #GoDevils #ItAintWeakToSpeak #ClubTeamIndividual @waterpoloaus @waterpolonsw
So excited to see the full clip of @dragonausnz ‘Mental’ Team Trip go live today after so many people have put so much hard work into it. Last year Dragon bought some of our Aus and NZ surf team together for 3 days of waves whilst also spending time with the legends at @livinorg to better understand mental health and the challenges of mental illness - the idea being that with improved understanding and education we are all better equipped to look after ourselves, our loved ones and those in our community. So excited to see the finished product and stoked to see our athletes lending their considerable and influential voice to helping normalise these conversations. The hashtag #donthidebehindyourshades is all about encouraging people to speak up when they are struggling, and also check in regularly with friends, family and those we care about. The more often we have these all important conversations the more comfortable we become and the more normal they feel. A world where we feel a little less alone at times sounds like a place we all deserve to live in. #itaintweaktospeak Head over to @dragonausnz page to scope the full clip if you are feeling it and a massive shout out to the crew who made this happen particularly @zo_neilson @thomasedgar @tomwrght @hudsonriver So incredibly proud of the job you guys have done.
To think 1 year ago today I was admitted into the hospital turning into the most scariest day of my life. Within hours my strength rapidly disappearing not being able to walk let alone lift myself out of a chair. The thought “am I going to walk again” running through my mind like it was on repeat. Days became weeks and weeks became 2 months in hospital with majority of that not knowing what was going on or how I’d get better. The support of my family and friends pulled me from my lowest days and pushed my willingness to keep fighting to get stronger. The only words I remember the DR saying to me is you CANT and you WONT! I used the negative power of those words to drive and push my limits! Over the year I have surprised myself with my inner strength, focus and determination. You can do anything you put your mind to! Keep focused and be willing to accept or ask for help! Having help is not a sign of weakness yet a sign of strength 💪🏻 #determinedtosucceed #icandoit #strength #power #family #friends #itaintweaktospeak #mentalhealth #soldiersunited #livinorg #makeithappen

Must Watch: The Dragon team took the lead on the mental health conversation with their new edit “#DontHideBehindYourShades ”. It’s great to see so many athletes using their platform to break the stigma on the issue. Check out the full video through the link in our bio! #ItAintWeakToSpeak #MOTIONSmagazine
Waiting for the clouds to cover the sun helped a little bit, but it was still so hot and humid this afternoon. 9km done and dusted.

@dragonausnz recently gathered some of the team for a Surf Trip with a twist. Using the HPC centre as home base, we spent 3 days searching for peaks along the East Coast and also took part in a LIVINwell session run by the guys at @livinorg to help educate and promote positive conversations surrounding mental health. Check @dragonausnz for the full video. #DontHideBehindYourShades #ItAintWeakToSpeak
. We learn from others and we question ourselves everyday, what if ? There is no answers but there is support. #itaintweaktospeak #itsreal #friends #family #speakup #weareallheretohelp #resteasy 🙏🏻
Nice to ride for a brand that work to spread the word on mental health. Particularly, the importance of speaking up and supporting each other through tough times. Go check out their surf trip with a twist. Link in their bio ✌🏻 @dragonausnz. #donthidebehindyourshades #itaintweaktospeak
Mental health has and always will be something I try and use my voice to help raise awareness and de-stigmatise. Without helping ourselves and speaking up we can’t help each other.

That is not a headline I ever thought I would read. This just shouldn't be happening. I am heartbroken for this little boy and his family. Bullying is just not ok. Whether you're 5, 10 or 50. This little guy had clearly been through a lot already in his young life and he shouldn't have had to deal with the added anxiety brought on by these bullies. I'm sure he was a beautiful, sweet kid and now his family have to go on without him. Such a tragedy. I really feel for his family. He was 10 for goodness sake. It's just despicable. Rest in peace little man. . . #bullying #stopbullying #colostomy #ileostomy #sad #tragedy #suicide #itaintweaktospeak

I had an epic time not long ago when @dragonausnz gathered some of the Aus/NZ team for a Surf Trip with a twist. Using the HPC centre as home base, we spent 3 days searching for peaks along the East Coast and found some little gems. It was so good to see the groms mix it with the likes of @acebuchan & @owright , learning & taking part in this important movement. We also took part in a LIVINwell session run by the guys at @livinorg to help educate & promote positive conversations surrounding about mental health.. .

Mum & Bub.. Mental illness has affected most of us in one way or another, yet the stigma around being silent still remains! It’s time to kill off the silence and be brave enough to speak. Battling mental illness myself I still find myself being told by others to “just be happy” or “change my mood” I ask would you say the same thing to somebody with a broken leg? “Just walk it out” or “is it even broken” ... Just because we don’t see mental illness doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist or that we can just “snap out of it” #itaintweaktospeak #its2019 #beingsilentwasso2018 #timesarechanging #breakthestigma #livinorg #mumandbub #matching @livinorg

Amazing to see Glenn @glenn_marsden talking about the @imperfectlyperfectcampaign. You are doing incredible work in raising awareness for mental health and the action you are taking to spread good messages is impressive, necessary, and inspiring. Thank you! Amazing to meet @cass_brothers and what incredible footage of the day!
Last year we had the pleasure and privilege of working alongside @dragonausnz stoked to see this work come to reality.

Suicide is not a joking matter. So before you make a comment like “I could just kill myself” in a joking manner, please remember someone I loved very much died by suicide and I do not find the humour in it. In fact it hurts me very deeply. Think before you speak.

This year we are raising funds for the black dog institute. #blackdoginstitute #itaintweaktospeak
ANXIETY🤯- let’s get real here people. Unfortunately, anxiety and depression is something I struggle with on a daily basis. If I tried to put into words what it is exactly I struggle with, I couldn’t answer you. Because frankly I don’t even know! And the way it’s managed changes everyday. Some days I’m in such a great headspace that it’s like it doesn’t even exist. And other days, it’s so debilitating that I can’t even get out of bed. Today feels like one of the bad days. Something I do believe in though, is I am a completely open book. Why should I sit here and struggle in silence on my own? Talking about it does help. Whether it’s to my husband, friend, work colleague. Exercising makes a massive difference too. Even if I don’t want to leave the comfort of bed, I do it anyway because I know that if I stayed there feeling sorry for myself- it’ll just make me feel worse. So if you’re one of these people who struggle with this awful, pain in the ass issue, please know I’m thinking of you and wishing you well ❤️ #health #mentalhealth #anxiety #depression #itaintweaktospeak #itsoktonotbeok #support #mindset #exercise #love #selflove #motivation #selfcare

Men, Do you catch yourself saying…. - No, I’ve got this. - I’ll be ok. - I’ll figure it out. - I just need a little more time. - I’ll get it sorted. When what you should really be saying is ‘I’m scared shitless to admit I need help’. Or ‘I’m too proud’. . I know how you feel, I’ve been there. One of the hardest things for a man to ask for is help. You’ve been taught asking for help is a sign of weakness. Asking for help means you're not smart enough. You think asking for help means you’re not good enough. . Here’s the problem; If you don’t allow yourself to be helped in the areas of your life where it matters most, then this way of thinking and being will destroy you. . HELP has taken on a meaning among men that implies weakness and lack of power. . I say this is complete BS, and it’s time it changed. . I know this from personal experience… . I went from confusion to clarity, by getting help. I went from lost to on track, by getting help. I’ve gone from simply existing to living my purpose, by getting help. . I want to change the narrative playing in your mind... Asking for help is a sign of courage. Asking for help implies your willingness to grow.
Asking for help is a way to fast track the journey. . Launching soon, for a select group of men who had the courage to ask for help will:‬ - learn how to get intimacy back in their marriage/relationship - Take their health and fitness to its peak - Turn their pain to power - take back control of their life - master how to get out of their own heads - Discover their mission and purpose for life . If you are serious about wanting help, comment ‘HELP’ below, I’ll send you some more info about the #MenWithPurpose program. . . . #menscoach #itaintweaktospeak #masculinityrising #mindsetreset #nlp
How we view our differences will determine how we feel about ourselves. If we are embarrassed or worried about how other people will judge them, we won’t feel happy. Try hard to appreciate who you are - differences and all - and you will find out that you are likeable just the way you are.

In August last year, @dragonausnz brought together their athletes from all over Australia and NZ for 3 action-packed days of surfing, hanging out at the Surfing Australia High Performance Centre and participating in a LIVIN Well mental health workshop run by Co-Founder, Sam Webb, and @livinorg ambassadors. Featuring the likes of global athletes Owen Wright and Ace Buchan, as well as regional up and comers Kehu Butler, Xavier Huxtable, Caleb Tancred and Noah Stocca, the Mental Team Trip campaign aims to normalise the conversation around mental health in our community. . The key message behind the edit - #Don ’tHideBehindYourShades - aims to encourage you to speak up if you’re struggling, and check in regularly with your mates and family. 👉🏼 Full clip on our website ⚡️⚡️ Link in Bio . @dragonausnz @livinorg . #donthidebehindyourshades #itaintweaktospeak

The other day, after telling someone what I've been through in the past year alone, they asked me, "How are you so smiley?" And I simply replied, "Because I know my worth." • • Just 3 months ago to this day, I was done. I was so certain that I could no longer live this life of constant hurt and disappointment. Anyone who knows me, I've been down that road many times before - but not like this. I spent 4 days in hospital, in a blurry, nightmare-like state and I just wanted it to end. • • Just to sit here today, as happy and content as I am.. I am so thankful and grateful that I didn't give up. My stubbornness is my favourite thing about myself. No matter how much trauma I am put through, I pick myself up and show myself the love that I need and deserve. • • I have never been so selfish and care-free in my life and I'm so thankful for every obstacle I've been given, in order to make me grow in to the strong person I am today. • • I no longer define my strength by the weight I lift, but by how many times I can get knocked down and put myself on my feet again. • • So proud of myself. #itaintweaktospeak #mentalhealthawareness

I’ve been able to tick a couple of things off in the last 24 hours and can announce that I’ll be running from Melbourne to Adelaide in December-January at the end of the year. I was diagnosed with a chronic illness 3 months ago and had a flare up in my back so I haven’t been able to train but everything now approved by the the people who matter, and the plan is in the works. 🏃‍♂️ Running coach booked Physio/Pilates weekly booked Support from my family & partner ✔️ I’ll be running for two or three charities/foundations and I can announce the first one is @otlr which is a great organisation who create awareness and help out with sporting clubs and within the community and reducing the stigma around mental illness. Being involved in sporting clubs has saved my life and is a huge thing for me going forward. It’s like having a big family who you can turn to when you’re struggling. Males are wired to stay quiet and get over it, and we need to change this going forward. The run itself distance wise and the track route and the days to do it haven’t been finalised, as I have a plan in the works and need to hit some targets in the next 6 months. Through out the year, I’ll be asking for your help. Sponsors, donations, shares, raffle prizes etc but more details will come. The first step for me is to strengthen my body a little more with my weight training. Sorting out my nutrition, & recovery so I can drop some body fat to help lessen the pressure on my knees and hips. I’m looking to raise $10,000 for three charities The plan- each day to run with a new singlet in memory of someone lost to suicide and another illness to be spoken of soon.

One of my New Years Resolutions is to get into nature minimum at least 1 time every week, whether it be on a hike, swimming in the ocean, or exploring waterfalls and water holes. Nature is so grounding and has such a positive impact on my life, especially with my mental health. I feel calm, at ease, and more mindful when I'm in nature. I've recently been struggling with my mental health, feeling very anxious, very stressed, and some days down. I recognised how overwhelmed I was feeling and booked into my GP and asked for a referral to see a psychologist so that I can get on top of my mental health and not end up like I was 3-4 years ago when I hit rock bottom. I'm not posting this for sympathy, (I have amazing support from family, my partner and my close friends) I'm posting this for awareness. It's OKAY to have bad days, but it's absolutely essential for you to look after yourself and do things that lift you out of that dark place, and make sure you're maintaining self care ALWAYS. It's imperative that you recognise if you need the extra help and support from a professional. I talk openly about this because there is such a big stigma about mental health, and far too many people think that they have to suffer alone and in silence and don't reach out for help. If you're feeling this way, it's not weak to speak or reach out for help, if anything it's brave for doing so. Ironically I didn't post this photo last week after my hike as I was on my way to my first appointment. I'm doing okay, and I'm so grateful for the support that I have, you know who you are 💖🙏💖🙏 #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #itaintweaktospeak #hiking #nature #natureishealing

✨ Certainly not one to speak my thoughts and emotions, but it’s become such a significant issue in our every day lives and we must spread love and awareness. Anyone who knows me well, knows that I’m not the type of person to release my emotions in public unless it’s someone I can trust with my whole entire life. In terms of depression, this sickness can come in many shapes, sizes or forms. We all have our ups and downs, and some people have their own ways to manage it. We then also have a considerable amount of people who don’t know how to face their emotions, therefore turn to anger and negativity and excessive thoughts. We are peer pressured and are brainwashed by all the social media platforms, having to look and act a certain way to feel accepted in today’s society. It’s psychological abuse, and we can’t open up about it either because of our culture, status in a group, opinionated and judgemental people, and the lack of trust in anyone. It’s damaging families, friendships and people’s lives. We are all human we have feelings, and we also have the right to release our emotions in whatever way we want. No matter what you’re going through, big or small... you’ve got to understand that we all have a purpose in life, don’t let anyone think any different. Do us all a favour- reach out to your friends, loved ones, colleagues, sports mates, classmates, or anyone you cross paths with! ask how they’re doing, spread the love and ALWAYS BE KIND. Everybody just needs some type of reassurance in their lives, and it’s a simple job to just listen, show some compassion and be approachable. For anyone that wants to talk, I’m always here to listen and give any sort of advice with no hate or judgement. #itsoknottobeok #ruok #itaintweaktospeak
Sometimes we really need to sit down and read these brief statements and take them right in. They do carry alot of meaning when you are near rock bottom. There is always someone out there ready to listen and try and help you. @redsix_app is a really good app for this and our house is always open. 🇦🇺 #palmerstonnt #darwinnt #darwinlife #NT #gotya6fitnessandnutrition #redsix #edgehealthclubscasuarina #fitness #nutrition #mentalhealth #mindset #nevergiveup #yougotthis #believeinyourself #youareworthit #itaintweaktospeak #veterans #firstresponders #ptsd #ptsdsucks #depression #anxiety
