Love Me Love You
No one travels their journey alone.
Love Me Love You is a not for profit organisation providing interactive and engaging programs that challenge the views and stigmas surrounding mental health.
According to the World Health Organization, mental health is ‘a state of well-being in which every individual realizes his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community. ’
A former first round draft pick and AFL footballer, Lance Picioane established Love Me Love You in 2013 to empower our community to take control of their mental wellbeing and to live happier, more fulfilling lives. As a teenager and throughout his AFL career, Lance was diagnosed with depression and anxiety. Like many young adults, Lance chose not to ask for help, but instead turned to partying and substance abuse.
By being truthful with himself, his family and his friends, Lance turned a corner and sought help. Although he still has his down days, Lance now lives a life full of love and happiness. Love Me Love You programs are based on Lance’s experiences and are aimed at educating and empowering our community about the importance of mental health and their wellbeing journey.
