how to book your mental health month celebration screening

mental health month & Nextwave

Nextwave is regional Australia’s largest youth film development program- but it has a dual purpose.  Each year Nextwave teaches over 1000 young regional students about positive mental health strategies, aiming to destigmatise the conversation around mental health. Many of the short films in the program include important youth mental health themes. 

The Nextwave program is available to book for the month of October to help get the word out that it’s OK to talk about mental health.
