Pilot Rural Outreach Program – Cobar 2014

Sebastian and one of Batyr’s speakers, Bryan Coleman, headed out to Cobar to participate in our first ever Rural Outreach Program. Sebastian and Bryan were hoping for a good turn out, but the number of young people and community members that attended the program was absolutely mind blowing. Not only was there an amazing turn out from young people in the community but schools, social services and even Cobar’s Mayor did their part to show support. Batyr is very excited to work alongside the young people in Cobar to establish a long-term initiative to eliminate the stigma around mental health in the community, encourage help-seeking behaviour and empower young people to give a voice to their stories.

Location: Cobar, NSW.
