About Me

Me, Myself, and I
If you're 20 years of age or under, you can get up to $1000 (if you're an individual), or up to $5000 (for groups) for your project.
Your imagination is your limit! Come up with a creative project and tell us how it's related to youth mental health and wellbeing and teaching other young people about it, and we'll fund you to do it 'cos we want to support you to RISE UP!

Rise is about rising up to help increase youth mental health awareness and reduce the stigma and discrimination for young people who have mental health issues. It's about empowerment and the opportunity for young people to promote mental health and wellbeing to other young people.
Who is running RISE?
RISE is a project of The Werry Centre for Child and Adolescent Mental Health workforce development programme.
