Did you know:
NeuRA wants to raise awareness to the important mental health research being done in Australia across areas of Bipolar, Schizophrenia, Depression, and Anxiety. NeuRA is running a series of FREE seminars on new areas of research with leading researchers in both Sydney and Melbourne (NeuraTalks). However, we would like to reach out to the youth of Australia in a colourful and meaningful way to talk about mental health issues- much like the ice bucket challenge. The brain is an amazing, colourful, and vital part of our bodies, it needs to be celebrated, and mental health discussions, need to be turned from a dark topic into a positive, colourful, conversation.
Colour Your Hair for Mental Health Week, raise awareness, share your coloured hair, and encourage others to do the same.
Don’t forget to tag @neuraustralia, #colouryourhair, #colouryourhairforMHW.
