The primary function of the ‘Mental Wheels Foundation’ is to fund programs that improve Mental Health of all Australians.
Depressed mental health leads to shattered lives and in the worst cases suicide. The problem in Australia is critical with a person (mostly males) attempting suicide every 6 minutes. They are our friends, family, loved ones and colleagues, and we believe that it doesn’t need to be this way.
The ’Mental Wheels Foundation’ has determined that to make real and lasting change we need to conduct relevant research, delivered through clinical partners, then made accessible to all.
Our actions include our Mental Wheel of Life Workshops - providing resources and tools to organisations and community groups promoting positive mental health and how to deal with life's challenges, and also Scholarship Programs in the area of Sport and Music. These areas are proven through research to directly improve Mental Health.
To enable each action, we have partnerships across Research, Clinical Support and Scholarships, and to fund this we conduct a series of events throughout the year - Corporate, Community and Cycling Events.
