Young people have faced a tumultuous 2 years and mental health has become a major focus amongst the younger generation.

This team plans to harness the focus on mental health and hold an event with the hopes of creating a safe space to discuss mental health and share strategies on how to deal with issues related to mental health.

Introducing the S.M.A.S.H Convention, the Self, Mind, Active, Sports, Health Convention. The team will invite celebrities, sporting icons and everyday heroes to share their stories and struggles with mental health. It will also involve workshops which offer tips on how to cope with mental health issues and hardships.

To trial this idea, the team wants to create a 10 minute video which will be delivered in collaboration with Carlton Football Club, focusing on male and females stories and staff from the football club sharing their journey with mental health.
