Dara Mental Health Ambassadors

The Daramalan Mental Health Ambassador Program was started in 2011 after a small group of students enrolled in the AFFIRM Life Line training program.

Since then a team of students has been involved in bringing about an awareness of how important mental well-being is, for everyone.

Our interests include: the Mentor Program, Autism awareness, positive affirmation for well-being and mindful meditation for optimal learning.

The group also runs a fund raising event in Mental Health Week and supports national and global programs such as The Roar Effect, RU OK Day, Bullying NO WAY and promotes services provided by Beyond Blue, Mood Gym and other counselling services. The Mental Health Ambassadors meet weekly for planning and to put the spotlight on mental health issues.
