Living life to the full: Building and maintaining good mental health

The Mercy Foundation Youth Awards is a competition open to high school students across Australia from years 7 to 12. The competition aims to encourage you to learn more about social justice issues in Australia. The competition opens Monday 26 April and closes 23 July 2021. To enter:

1) Create a visual representation, like a cartoon, artwork, collage or photo, that shows the everyday things that you can do to live life to the full and help build and maintain good mental health. Take a photo of your creation and upload it with your entry form (NB no faces in your photo).

2) Each entry must include a written paragraph (no longer than 100 words) that explains your photo (ie the everyday things you do to care for your mental health).

3) AND fill out the Mental Health quiz.
