YSC Community Spotlight: LIVIN

Your Social Club would like to shed the light on a local group helping in the fight against mental health stigma.

LIVIN was founded on the Gold Coast, Australia 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 breaking the stigma around mental health. Connecting, supporting and encouraging one another to talk about their feelings and challenges because “It Ain’t Weak to Speak”. Through the development of cutting edge education programs, apparel and community awareness initiatives, LIVIN are launching a generational change. Let’s unite to help people start LIVIN again.
