TUFMINDS Inside Out Day
TUFMINDS is a mental resilience and suicide prevention program provided by the Exqisit Life Foundation. TUFMINDS was established in Mackay in 2018 by Drs John and Elizabeth McIntosh. The free TUFMINDS App is being used in 51 countries around the world, saving lives from suicide on a daily basis, as well as, dramatically improving mental resilience, stress, anxiety, depression, insomnia and life coping skills.
TUFMINDS are hosting Inside Out Day fundraising event coming up on Tuesday 7th September .
The concept behind “TUFMINDS Inside Out Day” is to help people understand that your internal thoughts impact your outside actions and outcomes. Therefore, having a positive and healthy mindset inside, creates a positive and healthy world outside.
For a GOLD COIN donation, we challenge you to wear something INSIDE OUT and make it a FUN DAY by getting your family, friends, workmates to join in and raise money and awareness for mental well-being and suicide intervention.
