My Future Academy
19 October 2017
Last Friday I participated in the Stigma Cup, a soccer game put on by My Future Academy as part of Euroa Primary School's fete. My Future Academy is a fabulous new mental health initiative based out of Euroa, which is aiming to work side by side with young people to see them become engaged, active community members who are reaching their full potential and who are fully aware of issues around mental health. I would particularly like to acknowledge the work of Jimmy Ivill, who was driving the event, and Kate Reid from the Centre for You, who spoke about the need to reduce stigma, particularly in regard to young people and mental health.
