“There’s no one blueprint that works for everybody,
it’s not about you being the answer. It’s about asking the right questions to allow someone to answer themselves.”

what people are saying

 “Through Lance sharing his journey (both the highs and lows) so generously and openly, he engaged our students and educated them on the importance of connecting with someone and asking for help when you need it. He showed them that seeking help for mental health takes courage and strength, which is so very important. We will definitely be inviting Lance back in future years so that all of our students get to hear his story.”

Nicky Collins-Smith

Keilor Downs Secondary College

“I met LMLY when seeking help for my daughter.  They have been fantastic ever since in keeping in contact with us to check in. Lance has spoken in my workplace which opened a lot of people’s eyes to mental health and talking about the same.  I suffer from depression myself and having been involved in MWM19 and pushing awareness in my workplace, has helped me immensely.  The reach of LMLY is more than meets the eye.  What they have done for me, my family, my workplace and the individuals in it is something they don’t get to see.  They help save people’s lives.”

Glenn Hall

“Want to thank Lance and the LMLY team for coming in and speaking to our Ascot Fitness Youth program. A really insightful presentation. I think the kids really took a lot away from it. Was easy to organise with the company and things ran very smoothly. Really love the work they are doing, changing the stigma on mental health!”
