The project involves individual mentoring and leadership development programmes, as well as giving Seb and other chosen leaders an opportunity to contribute to the National Mental Health Commission’s work. Contributions will include mental health policy advice, advocacy and reporting associated with the Commission’s mandate, and co-chairing or membership of advisory groups to the commissions and other organisations.
Batyr, a non-profit organisation, aims to engage, educate and empower young people through their programs to reduce the stigma on mental health, increasing help seeking behaviours by ‘giving a voice to the elephant in the room’. Batyr’s mission is to foster an environment where seeking help and talking about mental health is not only acceptable but is encouraged and supported.
