Global health, including mental health, has been a focus 'down under' in Australia for over a decade.

District 5450

My club, Boulder Valley Rotary Club in Colorado (US), has been active in a variety of local mental health projects over the last three years. 
 
In early 2015, a group of clubs that either had mental health projects or were interested in learning more created an informal committee we named Rotary Mental Health Initiatives. The committee includes MH professionals who are not in Rotary.
 
In December 2015, we organized a mental health expo in Denver, Colorado. 33 mental health organizations had booths. 550 people, mostly Rotarians, attended. The Governor of Colorado spoke about the State’s progress and plans regarding mental health resources. There was also a great speaker from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation who told of her personal experiences dealing with mental health issues.  We think it was the largest public mental health education event in our state’s history. Feedback from participants was excellent.

In the year 1992, a 15 day module on Life skills and personality Development was prepared for school children in the age group of 10 to 16 years. Another advanced module was prepared for undergraduate college students in the age group of 16 to 22 years. It was realised that formal school education seriously lacked the components of development of a good personality and psychosocial competence, as it focused mainly on school curriculum teaching and learning.
