Beach shoes convey mental health 'crisis'

AAP logoAAP 1/11/2016

More than 190 pairs of shoes have been placed at Sydney's Bondi Beach to represent each man who has taken their life in the past month.

The Movember Foundation laid out the shoes at dawn on Tuesday to remind Australia it "cannot bury its head in the sand" on men's health.

"Until you spend a day in the shoes of someone who is suffering it's impossible to appreciate the challenges they're facing," Rachelle Nicole, who lost a friend to suicide, said.

Men are encouraged to grow moustaches throughout November to raise awareness of prostate and testicular cancers as well as suicide.
