Thank You to the MAF!
Grow is very proud to be associated with and supported by the Mental Awareness Foundation (MAF). We received a $12,000 donation from their 2017 Walk For Awareness which will be of great use to our Queensland Branch.
Wesley and Tudor, the founders of MAF, exhibit a passionate and deeply personal commitment to creating awareness around maintaining good mental health. They understand the emotional pain and turmoil caused by the loss of friends and used their experiences to raise awareness so that people can get the help they need, when they need it, so other young lives are not cut short.
MAF have helped to create some wonderful health promotion and education tools, including a pocket sized guide that provides direction on how to support a person who is expressing suicidal thoughts including signs to look out for. In addition, they have also produced some fantastic videos and media to be shared among their growing fans and supporters on social media.
Wesley, Tudor and their Foundation’s supporters have turned personal tragedy into a powerful way to raise awareness about mental health and suicide, so that other young lives will not be needlessly lost.
