GQ (Australia) - - GQ MEN OF THE YEAR -

“Firstly, I wanna say a big thank you. But also, I wouldn’t feel right with­out us­ing this mo­ment to talk to you a lit­tle more se­ri­ously. I want to reach out to you in this night full of cel­e­bra­tion, and ask you to think about some­thing. I lost my lit­tle sis­ter to sui­cide in De­cem­ber last year, and I want her to have a voice right now. If she was here, she would tell you that sup­port­ing your friend or a fam­ily mem­ber, is a spec­trum. You don’t have to be there ev­ery mo­ment of ev­ery day. Just take a lit­tle time out of your busy life to have a kind con­ver­sa­tion, ask some hard ques­tions, and re­ally, re­ally lis­ten. Just a five-minute chat can save some­one’s life.”
