Walking off the War Within 2020
On Saturday 29 February Walking Off The War Within was held at St Patrick’s College Ballarat to raise awareness and help fight depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. Emergency Service Personnel, Defence Force Personnel and members of public walked in memory of Nathan Shanahan, a returned solider and firefighter, and of other fallen Service Men and Women who have taken their own lives after battling mental health issues. Our practitioners Lyndel and Tiana were on site providing free massage services to all participants in the event. It was great to see so many people walking for such an amazing cause and standing together to support the fight to shake the stigma associated with mental health.
