Australian Rotary Health celebrates Hat Day on World Mental
Health Day, October 10!
By supporting Hat Day you are helping to Lift t
he Lid on Mental Illness 
by breaking down the stigma and contributing to vital mental health research. 
We know that 1 in 5 Australians experience a mental illness every year, but
with COVID-19, these figures may have increased. Therefore, it is more
important than ever that we continue to fund mental health research, especially
for our youth.
Here is one  event Rotarians and friends and families  can get involved in...
Conceived  by our own Sue Foley, D9800 District Chair of Community Service

Rotary in Harmony - Classical Concert (Zoom)

As a gift of music to our fellow Rotarians, families and communities, please
join us on Zoom on Sunday, October 11 at 3pm.
In this year 2020 when many have found themselves in trying times, the
value of the enjoyment of music on one’s mental health has prompted a group of D9800 Rotarians to gather vocalists and musicians together for an afternoon concert to
uplift the soul. This concert is FREE but you are encouraged to donate to Australian
Rotary Health.
Donations can be made at: or

Thank you for your support!
