We’re so excited to invite you for our free community workshop, ‘Rise Up’ Talking Tour, which will raise awareness on mental health and illness in our community.
Hosted by The Rise Foundation’s Founder and Director, Ben Higgs, this workshop will provide tools to educate & empower individuals to manage and respond to mental health issues for themselves and others.
“Our message is entertaining, high energy, engaging, motivational, thought-provoking, and will alter behaviours. Rise’s powerful message is delivered with education but sprinkled with humour. They were empowering in a realistic and relatable way that allowed them to positively affect the audience on a level of comfort and connection that not many can achieve.” – The Rise Foundation.
About Ben Higgs
Using over 30 years of experience living with a mental illness, Ben isn’t your average everyday presenter delivering a boring presentation. The real, raw, honest approach to life, what it can throw at us, what we can be presented with, and more importantly how we face it. Ben’s focus is on educating and teaching the everyday practical tools we can use so that people no longer have to live in silence with mental illness or poor mental health.
We are more than just a gym. We are a community.
We understand how essential it is to discuss this subject in our community. Your well-being is just as important as your physical fitness. That’s why we are so pleased to be part of this initiative and help spread the word about mental health!
The event is free and will be held at all Bodyfit locations (except Redfern South Eveleigh). Save the date and join us in this cause!
