A message from Robyn

Founder and Director of the Highlights on Mental Health Campaign

I am confident young people will embrace this opportunity as they did in 2015. I was heartened by the enthusiasm of last year’s entrants, their commitment and a willingness to have a go. It was a joy to watch their personal development, social interaction, team comradeship and the friendships that blossomed between them. Equally noteworthy is a dramatically improved positive attitude towards mental health as the fourth year of our campaign unfolds, continuing to reduce the stigma and build positive awareness and acceptance. We are proud of our progress in the Illawarra and ask that you support us in our 2016 mission to make a real difference in the lives of those who face the challenge of mental health.
