Tasmanian Liberal MP Felix Ellis (left) also attended the evening.

The second one was held on Wednesday 21st April with the Rotary Club of Westbury, with 60 people in attendance. Mental health speakers included Lindsay Morgan, Greg Wing and Fiona Thowe.

We thank everyone who got involved bringing mental health awareness to the community! 

ARH Researchers and Scholars Share with Rotary Club of Mornington

The Rotary Club of Mornington recently hosted ARH researcher Liam Ryan and Indigenous Health Scholar Molly King at their club meeting. Both Liam and Molly's scholarships are partially funded by the club.

They are pictured here with Ted Moore, Ken Bilham and Ross Kilborn. Ted and Ken were members of the club when Ian Scott first proposed that the club raise funds for research into SIDS which led to ARH.

This first episode was with Dr Louise Mewton, talking about the findings from her Postdoctoral Fellowship research project: "Preventing adolescent mental illness through brain training." 
In our last newsletter we introduced you to Lynne, a Rotarian who is walking the 1005km Bibbulmun Track to help raise funds for ARH. Well, Lynne is now on her way! 

She set off last week determined to make a difference after a member of the Rotary Club of Rockingham (Western Australia), lost their son to suicide.
