PROJECT BENEFITS

This is a great project because it:

 

  1. Raises much-needed funds for ARH Mental Health Research. 

Today’s research is tomorrow’s treatment and cures


2.  Offers an opportunity to raise awareness of and support to those in our
community experiencing mental health issues


3.  Helps break down the barriers and stigma associated with mental ill health ​

​“ABOUT THE WALK”

 Originally the Rotary Club of Mooloolaba together with a number of other
Rotary Clubs on the Sunshine Coast staged a WALK FOR MENTAL HEALTH in
October to coincide with Queensland Mental Health Month.

The “point of difference” is that the walk is not a race. It is a family occasion offering
an organised “fun” walk.  

The inaugural Walk was held in October 2016 and has grown to include 26 club locations, thousands of participants and raised more than $200,000 for mental health research so far.

 

This year our exciting new look LIFT THE LID WALK for Mental Health will be held in many community locations across Australia.
