Have fun at school in September supporting mental health research
'Last year I stumbled upon the Mullets for Mental Health campaign. We were looking at how we could create campaigns that could assist a variety of Mental Health issues.
The whole school was supportive, with donations flowing in from students, teachers and community members. It was fantastic to have everybody on board getting behind such an important message Yes, it was done through the prism of a horrendous mullet but it made it so much more accessible and relevant, especially for this younger generation'
