For many of us, recent months have challenged our mental health like never before. Changed work environments, financial pressures, social isolation, alongside health concerns have all taken their toll. We’re also seeking comfort and connection from support services at unprecedented rates.
One such mental health service, Lifeline Australia, has reported a staggering 20% surge in calls to their crisis support hotline in the past three months. To ensure every call continues to be answered (currently at a rate of 1 call every 30 seconds), not only requires an army of committed volunteers, but financial support.
To play our part, Honan is proud to support Lifeline’s 30 Seconds To Save A Life campaign – a critical effort to spread awareness of this service, and the essential funding it requires to stay alive. Developed by independent Australian agency Thinkerbel, 30 Seconds To Save A Life works by donating a 30-second airtime advertisement to Lifeline, with a goal to raise $5m to meet increased demand.
