Anxiety is the most common mental health condition in Australia.

Australian Rotary Health is funding research to help combat anxiety.

#LiftTheLid on Mental Illness by donating to research today:

Always an inspiring listening to the students who take part
 in the Rotary Health, Indigenous Health Scholarships. 
. Cheryl introduced to two dental students in their 3rd year
 who are looking forward to getting out and giving back to the community
. A lady from Port Hedland who told us of her journey studying psychology 
and now adding social work with which she believes she will 
be able to make a difference in her home town. 
The story of a young man who chose to change careers as a mature age student
 and how he decided to become a GP.
 After getting to know the mother and family of the first baby he delivered,
 discussing his family with her, 
it was serendipitous that his wife just happened to be visiting the hospital 
as the new mother was leaving so they were introduced.
 It was this bonding and community that decided him to be a GP
 and form strong community bonds.
