Did you know that three in four Australians will experience a mental health challenge by the time they turn 25?

At Orygen, we work with young people to develop new, positive approaches to preventing and treating things like anxiety and depression, psychosis and other mental health disorders. 

That’s why this October we’re asking you to join the Burpee Bounce Back Challenge – you can help your own mental health by increasing your physical activity, and help others by asking your friends and family to sponsor you with a donation towards Orygen.

When you sign up this October, you are changing lives. 

Rise up for young minds by doing 1534 burpees over 17 days. Through burpee-ing you’ll help Orygen create a mentally healthier future for the 1534 Aussies aged 17 and under who are diagnosed with a mental illness every day.

Ask your friends and family to sponsor you with a donation, so we can focus on helping young people recover from mental illness.

Sign up today to help young Aussies bounce back towards better mental health.
