A Life Hidden Behind a Smile
Wayne Schwass is an ex-AFL player and mental health advocate who suffered from depression throughout his AFL career and went public with his battle in 2006. Puka Up, a new social enterprise led by Wayne himself, is committed to raising more awareness about mental health, emotional wellbeing and suicide prevention. While an inspiration to us all, Wayne Schwass is only one of many who have been struggling in silence.
Our recent 2018 Swisse Wellness Survey revealed that 15% of Australians believe they are experiencing high levels of stress, which have also resulted in poorer self-ratings of good mental health.
At Swisse, we believe it’s not just about being healthy and happy on the outside, it’s about feeling balanced on the inside as well. We want to inspire all Australians to move more, eat better and maintain a healthy mindset. Together, we can live healthier and happier each and every day.
