The LIVIN Health Initiative

LIVIN was founded in honour of a great man Dwayne Lally who like many others took his life after suffering in silence from a mental illness.

LIVIN is all about living your life at the top and destroying the stigma that is attached to mental illness. Connecting, supporting and encouraging one another to talk about their feelings, issues and challenges because “It Ain’t Weak to Speak”. Out with the old and in with the new, LIVIN is here to shake things up and make it okay to speak up and seek help in the 21st century. No judgement, just sheer compassion and understanding. Through education programs and awareness initiatives, LIVIN will launch a generational change.  Let’s unite to help our brothers and sisters start LIVIN again. Join the movement.

Footy Trips

Footy Trips, a division of All Sports Travel, are proud to be supporting LIVIN. Footy Trips have been the leading travel specialists of end of season footy trips for over 27 years, with the majority of our clientele being Australian men aged between 18 – 35. Every year Footy Trips are touched by the loss of young men through the relationships with their clients and like many people, want to play a role in suicide prevention and positive change. Through the partnership with LIVIN, Footy Trips can assist in spreading the important message that “It Ain’t Weak to Speak”, and help save lives.

The Official Top Ten Night

The Official Top Ten Night organises and creates unique events, held in various locations all around the world, with a simple message: Make a list, make a difference. In support of Suicide Prevention Australia, the events encourage conversations around the world, with the aim of reducing the stigma of talking about suicide and its prevention. TOTTN have been supporting LIVIN in getting their own message out there: “It Ain’t Weak To Speak”, as both organisations believe strongly in the importance of the encouragement of talking. They continue to support each other wherever possible.

Mental Health News Radio

Mental Health News Radio and LIVIN have partnered in order to support our mutual and global advocacy efforts to help eliminate stigma about mental health and spread awareness about suicide. We’ll be speaking at events together in the U.S. and abroad as well as interviewing guests on behalf of LIVIN with Sam Webb as co-host. Mental Health News Radio is dedicated to interviewing people from survivors, to best-selling authors, to counsellors, to athletes, to celebrities about all facets of behavioural health (Mental Health, Substance Abuse, Addiction, Recovery, Physical Health). Our shows are personal and raw no matter the guest. Let’s get #mentalhealthified!
