If you have an idea for a program in your school that will improve mental health outcomes for your community, you can apply for this grant. An example of a project funded in the past was a weekly morning tea to bring the community together, to address isolation and the poor mental health that results.
"The 2021 Australia Post Community Grants Program provides grants of up to $10,000 to eligible community-led, local projects that connect individuals and communities to improve mental health and wellbeing.
Being connected and feeling part of a community is vital to maintaining good mental health and wellbeing. At Australia Post, we understand that when people in communities connect, they feel better. We also know that this often results in improved mental health outcomes and we want to support the organisations that are helping make this happen."
