LIVIN (Top Livin ABN 46 600 787 513) is a fully registered charity that was created to wipe out the stigma on mental illness and raise awareness for suicide prevention once and for all. Unlike other charities in the mental health space, past and present, LIVIN use fashion, mainstream media and profiles to make this change and get people talking about mental health.
We want people to own their mental illness and to be empowered by who they are not by what they have.
The more people that talk and accept mental illness for what it is, the more comfortable and confident people will feel about seeking help and getting back on track. As long as you are speaking you are never alone.
LIVIN is all about LIVIN your life at the top and destroying the stigma attached to mental illness. Connecting, supporting and inspiring one another to talk about their feelings, issues and problems because “It Ain’t Weak to Speak” and you are never alone.
“We can save the lives of individuals, if we change the way society understands, perceives and interprets mental illness.” Sam Webb
” For too long mental illness and suicide has been perceived as a weakness, mental illness is no different to other illnesses such as cancer, heart disease and diabetes. We will change this.” Casey Lyons
