The purpose of the event is to build greater connectedness in our community, and make a pledge to support our peers.
A New social event will be held in Swan Hill March 2 2019 for young people to get together, promoting mental health awareness.
Year 10 Swan Hill College student Milla Devlin is the mastermind behind the Swan Hill Youth Mental Health Awareness Ball. "I thought I might do something for that age group that is more meaningful and has a lasting impact..." Milla said, "I want to create an event for teens which is based around something so important".
“We want to create a positive event for young people in our community, where we can start the conversation around mental health and say to our peers 'it's okay to not be okay'.”
