This is a timely initiative by Australia Post, with the COVID-19 crisis, lockdowns, job losses, and climate change affecting some people’s mental health.

Large organisations have great power to influence community well-being.

Mental health is set to be the focus of Australia Post’s 2021 community grants program.

It recognises the important role local initiatives can play in connecting communities and improving mental health and wellbeing.

From today, not-for-profit organisations can apply for up to $10,000 for projects that have a primary purpose of improving mental health and wellbeing, will help people meaningfully connect and are locally led and delivered.
