A Chance For Change was born out of a love for our mates and an unrelenting passion to make a change in the fight against the black dog. After having been affected by the suicides of way too many friends and having experienced what it feels like to be in that head space, we knew that something had to be done to help those suffering and that a change needed to be made.
Men in particular need to understand that there is help out there; that people really do care; that they’re loved and most importantly that no matter how hard life gets or how far down they may fall, suicide is not the answer.
