This email comes a bit out of left field but please stick with me…
Our client and friend Anthony Hart is in the process of building an ‘early intervention tool’ [in the form of a mobile phone app] to help men around the world deal with life’s challenges before they escalate to serious mental health issues.
Because alarming statistics demonstrate that men need help… Suicide is the No.1 cause of death for Australians aged 15-44; suicide kills nearly 3x the number of people than road deaths; and 75% of suicides are male.
And because Anthony has personally lived the experience – you can read his story here
Please take a moment to read Anthony’s message below – if it resonates with you then please visit his crowdfunding page to see how you can help.
We’re throwing our support behind Anthony and hope you can too.

It’s Anthony Hart here. Today, I’m a man on a mission and I need your help!
13 years ago, suffering from anxiety and depression, I reached the lowest point in my life. I survived becoming one of the shocking statistics of male suicide [Read my story here].
Did you know suicide is the no.1 cause of death for Australian men aged 18-44? That’s 2,292 men’s lives lost to suicide in 2015. Of those men, 65% never sought any professional medical help for the illness that took their life.
Given a second chance at life and shocked at these unnecessary statistics, I became a man on a mission to help reduce male suicide. During my recovery, I discovered 4 principles that helped me to get my life back on track. Believing those 4 principles could help others, I developed the Lifeback Tracker – an early intervention tool to help men deal with life’s challenges anytime, anywhere…..before they escalate to more serious mental health issues.
The Lifeback Tracker Booklet helps men track and discover the benefits of following the 4 principles over a 9-week program and it has been a phenomenal success. It won the 2016 People’s Choice Award at Innovation Box – Open State and has helped hundreds of Australian men already.
My dream is to transform the Lifeback Tracker tool from Booklet to App, because of its potential to instantly reach and help the 2.4 million or 1 in 10 Australians who suffer from mental illness each year.
I have personally invested in the concept development of the App and have appointed a top South Australian App Development company but now I need to ask for your help. I need to raise $100,000 to build the App, launch it to market, review it and release upgraded versions.
I am asking you and/or your business to support my Pozible Crowdfunding Campaign with a tax deductible donation by 7pm, Sunday 3rd September 2017.
