In support of Men’s Health Week, Chemist Warehouse and Schick is helping raise funds and awareness to promote healthy masculinity, improve mental fitness and save the lives of males throughout Australia. The pharmacy chain is backing the 2019 Gotcha4Life campaign which aims to help prevent male depression.
Each year in Australia alone, there are 65,300 suicide attempts, and sadly, 3,123 people successfully take their own lives. 2,348 of these are men. Gotcha4Life is resolute that these statistics need to change, and fast.
In 2019, the ambassadors lending their support include Aussie cricketer Steve Smith, AFL Swan’s legend Jude Bolton, League legend Benji Marshall and former fast bowler Brett Lee, to name a few.
Getting involved and doing your part for this worthwhile cause is so much easier than you think. Chemist Warehouse is stocking limited edition men’s products in specially-marked packaging. A percentage of all sales on the below products will be donated directly to Gotcha4Life:

It’s true that we’re a little late on this one, as Men’s Health Week took place from June 10 2019. Still, there’s plenty that can be done, and Gotcha4life operates all year round.
Gotcha4Life enables men and boys to develop better social and emotional connections with their mates, families and community via local and sustainable educational workshops and training programs. Gotcha4life partners with some heavy hitters like Lifeline, Tomorrow Man, Weave and Rural Outreach Counselling to achieve its goals.
