Since 2015, Aurelio has been candid about his own lived experience of mental and emotional un-wellness and resulting suicidal ideation.

Speaking, advocating and awareness raising have been paramount these past 8 years. Aurelio continues to actively campaign for those living with mental health issues and those harmed via poly-pharmacy.

Aurelio became an Ambassador for Lifeline WA in July 2015 and continues to support and raise funds for the vital support services Lifeline provide.

In 2023 Aurelio has created an artwork entitled WAKING INTO A DREAM- Printed onto a scarf, with proceeds being donated in support of Lifeline's ongoing work.

In previous years, Aurelio's donated artworks and gowns have raised in excess of $25,000 for Lifeline WA.
