2014 Art Competition

The Loddon Healthy Minds Network are once again running an art competition for 2014.  The competition will adopt the theme of the Healthy Minds Network for the 2014 year which is "Five Ways To Well Being".

The art competiton is open to all residents of the Loddon Shire between the ages of 14 to 18. Its focus is to provide a mental health topic that will create art and conversations amongst our youth. The greater the awareness of youth about mental health issues, the more positive a society we develop mental health wellbeing is a core value. There is still considerable stigma surrounding the topic of mental health. Competitions such as this and the conversations they create do a great job of breaking down the taboos in society regarding mental health.
