Our local Time to Change Champions are leading the fight against mental health stigma. For Men’s Health Week 2020 local Time to Change Champion Duke shares some of his favourite positive quotes that he sends to his mates every day as a way to check in with them.

 “Remember that one small crack doesn’t mean you are broken – it means you were put to the test and didn’t fall apart”

“Every struggle in your life has shaped you into the person you are today, be thankful for the hard times, they can only make you stronger”

“Happiness is letting go of what you think your life should look like and celebrating it for everything that it is”

“The best part of life is that every morning you wake up gives you another opportunity to become a happier version of yourself”

“Breathe and let go! Remind yourself that this very moment is the only one you know you have for sure”

“Not all storms come to disrupt your life, some come to clear the path”
