Community Activity – “Lift the Lid on Mental Illness – Celebrating Hat Day” for Australian Rotary Health – Bunnings Lilydale
October 7, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
Australian Rotary Health is one of the largest independent funders of mental health research within Australia. More information on Australian Rotary Health can be viewed on the following link https://australianrotaryhealth.org.au/
Lift the Lid on Mental Illness is Australian Rotary Health’s National annual fundraising day for mental health research.
The campaign, founded by ARH Vice Chairman Greg Ross, started in 2016 in partnership with Rotary Clubs of Victoria. The event was such a success that it has now been extended to all Rotary Clubs across Australia.
Each year approximately 1-in-5 Australians will experience a mental illness and in order to help future generations of young Australians, we need to look ahead through research and find out how we can prevent this type of illness occurring.
You can support this wonderful initiative by making a donation on World Mental Health Day, Tuesday October 10 to your local Rotary Club or to Australian Rotary Health. As we are also celebrating Hat Day, you are invited to hold an event and wear your most eye-catching hat.

CLUB ACTIVITY : We will be having an awareness table at Bunnings (in Lilydale this year) to raise funds for
Australian Rotary Health to help with mental health research.
