what's on for yrna?

Through the 2023 YRNA Fun Run we have been able to raise over $34,000, which will be used to support our upcoming projects. These
include the introduction of our school based peer-support programs and our event mental health first aid.

Our school based programs continue to grow, and thanks to the support of our generous donors, we are able to provide these programs completely free to over 10,000 school-aged children around the state. By providing these programs for free, basic knowledge around 'how to help a friend' becomes feasible and easily accessible.

Mental Health First Aid
Mental Health First Aid skills based, early-intervention training programs mobilise and empower communities by equipping people with the knowledge and confidence to recognise, connect and respond to someone experiencing a mental health problem or mental health crisis. This funding will support us in undertaking MHFA training, which will be delivered at events around the state to people in need.

Supporting you and those around you

Whether you want to understand more about how you're feeling and find ways to feel better, or you want to support someone who's struggling, we
can help.

  • What is mental health?
    We all have mental health, just like we all have physical health. It’s about how we think, feel and act. Sometimes we feel well, and sometimes we don’t. When our mental health is good, we feel motivated and able to take on challenges and new experiences. But when our mental health is not so good, we can find it much harder to cope.
  • How do I know if I have a 'mental health problem'?
    We all have good days and bad days, but when negative thoughts and feelings start to affect your daily life and stop you doing the things you enjoy, or your ability to feel ok, this means you probably need some support with your mental health. For example, nearly everyone gets anxious before an exam, a job interview or a first date. But if we feel anxious all the time, constantly worrying that the worst could happen, and this stops us sleeping well or meeting up with friends, we might benefit from some help.
