It’s Time to Talk about Mental Health

It’s Time to Talk about Mental Health

Health & Wellness

Almost half of all Victorians will experience mental illness in their lifetime but too many people don’t speak up for fear of stigma and discrimination. It’s time to start a new conversation – mental health is something which affects us all. 

The people profiled in It’s Time to Talk about Mental Health have shared their stories to illustrate how we are all affected by different mental health challenges, and to offer hope to anyone who may be struggling. 

You can find more information on the series by searching #timetotalkvic or read more here

If you or someone you know needs support, call Lifeline on 13 11 14 or beyondblue on 1300 224 636. In an emergency, call 000.

Can you help The Nappy Collective?

Can you help The Nappy Collective?

Health Weeks

Around 1 in 10 Australian mums will struggle to afford the nappies they need for their babies.

The Nappy Collective aims to deliver 1 million nappies to families in need this year.

Unfortunately, due to the current COVID-19 situation, they are unable to collect nappy donations so they are asking for you to consider giving the gift of virtual nappies.

For as little as $20, you can provide 1 weeks’ worth of nappies to a family in need.

Please head to their social media pages or their website to learn more, and to make a donation.
