You know there is more that can be done and you want to help make a difference in order to start changing the mental health statistics.

WHY Do You Need A Community Approach To Mental Health?


Because this is about saving people’s lives!

This is not about watching the statistics, it is about changing them.

It is about working together and taking people’s individual strengths that exist and bringing them together to improve localisted mental health outcomes.

It is about ensuring that passionate people, like you, don’t burn out from lack of traction and that you, instead, create true change in the space of mental health.
