Who is zero2hero?
zero2hero is a WA-based charity that provides mental health and suicide prevention programs to youth across the state, with the aim to achieve three outcomes with young people:
- Educate: young people about mental health, mental illness and suicide
- Engage: young people in open conversations about mental health in the aim to eliminate stigma around mental illness and suicide and increase help seeking behavior
- Empower: young leaders to become mental health ambassadors
Each year zero2hero reaches over 70,000 young people and has trained more than 180 mental health ambassadors in suicide first aid.
Where does the money go?
All funds raised for the charity go towards supporting our school programs and our mental health leadership camps.
Suicide is the leading cause of death for Australians under the age of 44. Suicide is caused by mental illness and 75% of mental illness is formed before the age of 25. This is why zero2hero focus their efforts on educating the youth in how to identify, seek help and support those people experiencing mental health problems.
