Splash the Stigma

Help turn the tide on youth mental health Splash the Stigma brings our community together to raise vital funds for youth mental health whilst getting active, having fun and taking on a challenge. Too often stigma stands in the way of young people getting help, and the consequences can be devastating - suicide remains the leading cause of death for young people in Australia. All funds raised through Splash the Stigma will go to batyr to provide life-changing mental health education for high school students. Choose your swim distance and complete your challenge throughout February! Dive in this February and let’s splash the stigma!
