Mental Health Awareness Week
Raising mental health awareness can help us to understand yours and others symptoms, find professional treatment, and, perhaps most importantly, break the mental health stigma that leaves so many people suffering in secret.
For this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week, we’ve got a couple of amazing people joining us for a Q&A session which will also be led by our special hosts.
Mental health is a complex topic that young people don’t always get to learn about from multiple perspectives, so we’re excited to have people from a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences share their experiences with managing their mental health.
Tune in via our Instagram Live over the coming days to hear our panel.

About Charity Bounce
Charity Bounce is a not for profit organisation that exists to build resiliency and positive job futures for young people at -risk (12-24), using innovation through basketball to create ‘out of reach’ opportunities that inspire and motivate change. With a focus on Indigenous and culturally diverse communities, including newly arrived refugees, we aim to move young people toward a more positive future through the development of sports, education and employment focused social programs. The programs are delivered in partnership with sporting organisations, engaging professional athletes alongside our youth workers to motivate and inspire participants.
