batyr partners with Count Charitable Foundation to deliver 12 school programs
We’re excited to announce that batyr has partnered with Count Charitable Foundation to deliver 12 educational mental health programs to schools across a number of states in Australia.
The $30,768 funding commitment from CCF comes at a time when young people have faced many challenges, some ongoing and some unprecedented, from natural disasters and the effects of climate change, to the ongoing impact of COVID-19. As a result, young people are dealing with added stress, anxiety and feelings of isolation.
“batyr is so thankful to Count Charitable Foundation and its member firms for their support and commitment to our [email protected] programs which smash the stigma around mental health and encourage young people to seek help when they need it,” batyr CEO Nic Brown said.
“We want to continue to reach more young people across Australia to feel empowered to take charge of their own mental wellbeing in a positive way and this funding will allow us to expand our reach and connect with new schools.”
“We are excited for the opportunities this partnership with CCF brings.”
CCF was founded by Count Financial Limited and Joy and Barry Lambert in 2004 to support Count Members and Count staff in their philanthropic endeavours and to help them make a significant difference in their communities.
“Mental illness is not restricted to adults – sadly our youth can have mental health issues,” CCF founder Barry Lambert said.
“At the Count Charitable Foundation, we recognise the lifelong impact and cost of mental illness and it is therefore important to give our youth the best chance for a happy and fulfilling life. In turn, this will produce the best outcome for our society.”
