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.
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.
