“Dear Joy,

Muster is a great outback kind of world! I offer my congratulations to Australian Rotary Health and all involved in the Muster for Mental Health, and appreciate the opportunity to express my support for Australian Rotary Health, an outstanding Australian project”

” Now it’s time for me to commend to you the Muster for Mental Health. These 12 Drives around Australia will bring Community Mental Heath Forums to regional and remote areas and reach out to Young Australians.

By engaging with Australian Rotary Health you are acknowledging the vision of Ian Scott and its many supporters for ARH to be a catalyst for improving the quality of life of people who are less able to help themselves.

I encourage you to support the Muster for Mental Health.”

“Rotarians and friends of Rotary

Almost half of the adult Australian population has experienced mental illness at some point in their lives. Research is essential in providing a great understand of mental illness and its causes. Australian Rotary Health plays a critical role by providing financial support for research, awareness and education across a whole range of health –related issues, including mental health.

In 2017, when setting out to create an event that would meet the same challenge that Ian Scott faced in 1982, Australian Rotary Health is embarking on the Muster for Mental Health – an exciting concept – challenging in its complexity – very demanding in its preparation and will be fulfilling for all involved.

It is critical for all Australians to work together to address young Australians mental health and support people living with mental illness, their families and friends. Australian Rotary Health Forums to remote and regional communities of Australia.

Australian Rotary Health cannot do it alone. Rotary Clubs and Districts need to support the Muster for Mental Health and become a Muster Mate. See what you can do at www.muster.org.au
