Virtual Corporate Breakfast – mental health

Hosted by Sue Hunt, Chief Executive Officer, The Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH) Foundation this Virtual Corporate Breakfast centred on mental health and wellbeing during COVID-19, and featured presentations from Professor Harriet Hiscock from the RCH Centre for Community Child Health and Tristram Gray from Kmart.

We were thrilled to host Professor Harriet Hiscock from the RCH Centre for Community Child Health and Tristram Gray from Kmart and I’m sure you’ll agree both presentations were thought provoking and inspiring.

We’re truly grateful for the work that Kmart do, not only in supporting RCH patients, but also the incredible work they’re undertaking in supporting the mental health of their own staff.

Prof. Hiscock’s vital work in supporting the mental health of Victorian children is so essential, especially during the current global pandemic.

Me and UooUoo: The RCH150 Anniversary Art Trail

It was also a pleasure to come together during NAIDOC Week, a very special time for the Australian Community. Acknowledging our First Nations communities is an integral part of hospital’s 150th anniversary year, and we’re excited to be hosting a number of initiatives as part of the RCH150 program centred around Indigenous health and community engagement.

One of these projects is the Me and UooUoo: RCH150 Anniversary Art Trail, a wonderful Victoria-wide activation that will encourage our community to get out and walk the streets of Melbourne and Geelong. The Art Trail will feature 100 unique sculptures painted by local artists, including a number of First Nations people. Meet Vandal, one of these artists, in the video below.  

If you’re interested in being involved and even exploring the creative working spaces, please contact Kate via [email protected] or on 0466 314 713.
