The young leaders who graduated from the two Menzies Young Leaders Training Program that we ran in 2016 and 2017 have been busy doing things such as graduating from university, working overseas, volunteering, doing endurance walks to raise money for mental health, and other really amazing things!
On the local scene, two young people have been very busy contributing regularly to events and activities organised through Satellite and our partner organisations.
Since graduating in October 2017, Nethaniel and Laura have given enlightening and well-received presentations about living in a family where a parent has a mental illness. Between the two of them, they’ve presented in a number of schools, public events, and conferences. They’ve also provided input at advisory groups, submitted applications for funding, co-facilitated group programs, and more. We are amazed at the leadership, expertise, and wisdom that they consistently display, and we are truly grateful for everything that they do.
