More and more councils (regional and urban) are putting money into community mental health grants. The stigma around accessing mental health support is slowly but surely reducing as more and more high-profile people admit to experiencing a mental health issue.

Three groups across the city will be able to dive into projects to help boost involvement in their communities thanks to Townsville City Council grants.

Townsville Little Theatre, Townsville Cycle Club, and Rollingstone and District Community Association now have the funds needed to forge forward with projects that would benefit their members and the wider community.
