Supporting Mental Health
13th August, 2021
Southern Cross Cargo are very pleased to be supporting the mental health charity Gotcha4Life. We are seeking to raise $4000.00 which will provide enough funds to cover 2 mental fitness workshops. During the month of August, $5.00 from every shipment will be donated to Gotcha4Life.
This is a great charity to support particularly in the current environment, the program provides people with ways to talk about how they are feeling and tools to deal with little problems early before they become bigger ones.
We welcome participation from our customers, service providers and friends in our chase to support mental health workshops.
In these difficult times we are very mindful of the health of all, being a small business ourselves we are particularly mindful of those businesses that have had to remain closed for an extended period due to current lockdown in parts of Australia.
Our support to this wonderful charity will allow those needing some assistance to have the opportunity to talk through there challenges and offer some advice on how to best cope.
Gotch4Life is a non-for-profit foundation taking action to promote the concept of, and build, mental fitness in individuals and communities throughout Australia. To us, this means developing emotional muscle, social connection & resilience to prevent instances of poor mental health & suicide. We identify and fund programs that focus on this concept of ‘prevention through connection’.
- Every year Over 65,000 Australians make a suicide attempt
- More than eight people die each day in Australia by suicide
- Suicide is the leading cause of death for Australians between 15 and 44 years of age
Everyone deserves to feel supported and safe, especially when times are tough. That’s why we do what we do. But we can only continue to deliver effective programs in the preventative mental fitness space through the generosity of our supporters and friends around the world. Help us help and together we can build better mental fitness for all Australians.
