Justin's Walk for Mental Health

Mental health issues are far too prevalent in our regional communities, particularly amongst men, who are 3 times more likely to die from suicide than women in Australia.

Justin Chester from Stawell knows this all too well, after losing two nephews to suicide over the past decade.

He's decided to take on a walk from Horsham to Naracoorte in memory of his nephews and to raise awareness of mental health issues while fundraising for Beyondblue.

Justin spoke to Flow FM on today's Country Viewpoint to share his story and why he chose the path he will walk.

To follow Justin's Walk for Mental Health, visit the Facebook page, and if you or someone you know needs help, call Lifeline on 13 11 14 or BeyondBlue on 1300 22 4636.
