Pathways to Resilience
Pathways to Resilience deliver programs designed to prevent anxiety, depression, and suicide, achieving positive outcomes for children, young people, families and communities.
Did you know, one in five (20%) Australians aged 16-85 experiences a mental illness in any given year? Australian youth have the highest prevalence of mental illness of any other age group. Pathways to Resilience was formed to address this. Specifically, the Pathways to Resilience team works in regional, remote and low-socioeconomic communities.
Funds Raised: $35,400
Debbie was pitching for funds to support the 'Wings to Fly' program. This program provides training to educators in remote regions to better support children who are at risk of being left behind due to behavioural problems and issues at their home. The program also works with elders, families and local community organisations as well, to build capacity and sustainability in the area.
