Every October, Australian Rotary Health encourages Rotary Clubs, businesses, and individuals to get involved in Hat Day as part of ‘Lift the Lid on Mental Illness’, our national fundraising and awareness campaign for mental health research.

We understand that this year the COVID-19 pandemic may present some obstacles, making it difficult to get involved in the same way as previous years. But we also believe this is an opportunity to put our creative thinking hats on!

 
This October our Club will be holding a Hat Day at our Meeting on Thursday 15 October, 2020. 
 
It's time to get creative and start putting together ideas and build your special Hat to wear. The most impressive hat will win a prize! 
 
Not feeling creative? No problem! Just wearing a hat and donating on the night is still a great way to contribute. 
 
Each participating member is asked to wear a hat and donate $2 towards this great cause. In addition to this all funds raised from Happy Fines will also be donated. 
 
Did you know that almost one in five Australians will experience a mental illness every year, and nearly half of the population (45%) will experience a mental illness at some stage in their lives? What better reasons to join and help out. 
 
 
It has been a tough year for everyone, so let’s get together (virtually or otherwise), put on a silly hat, and do something important for mental health.
