A long time mental health and anti-bullying advocate, Angie was concerned about the mental health fallout of the bushfire crisis. In choosing which charity to support through her appearance on DWTS, she wanted to find an organisation that was committed to providing mental health support for those affected by the fires.
Long term support for people impacted by fire-related trauma is a huge focus for SANE, and this is what led Angie to partner with us. We know that the impacts of this crisis will ripple out far beyond this moment. We need robust mental health support to be available not just during an emergency, but also well into the future.
We're very touched that Angie recognised this, and wanted to support SANE's work.
