LIFESTYLE TRADIE IS PROUD TO PARTNER WITH
Gotcha4Life 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’.
- 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
Lifestyle Tradie is so proud to partner with and support Gotcha4Life and the incredible work they do in breaking the stigma around mental health.
Meet Gus Worland, founder of Gotcha4Life
Gus Worland is a well-respected Australian media and radio personality, and the host of the podcast, ‘Not An Overnight Success.’ In 2017 following the success of his ABC docu-series, ‘Man Up’, as well as the tragic loss of his close friend and mentor to suicide, he realised through his network and influence, he could do something to help bring more awareness to the importance of connection and conversation… and Gotcha4Life was born!
Below you can listen to both episodes of ‘The Tradie Show’with Gus Worland. In our first episode, ‘Mental fitness and supporting a mate can save a life’, Gus explains the frightening rising number of suicides in Australia and what we can do to help prevent them.
And in our recent episode, ”Man up’ and SPEAK UP’, Gus explains the crucial change that needs to be made in regards to the stigma of men in particular being vulnerable and ‘weak’, instead finding your Gotcha4Life crew who you feel comfortable speaking up to.
