The NAB Foundation supports preventative mental health and wellbeing initiatives that build resilience and help empower young Australians and their families. We are delighted to see that much needed funds are being granted to support rural and remote mental health
NAB’s grants programs are administered through categories targeting social inclusion, mental health, access to services in rural and remote areas,
The 29 projects supported through NAB’s 2016 grants programs bring the total investment in community organisations during the past three years to more than $6 million, delivered through the NAB Foundation and NAB Community Grants.
NAB Group Executive, Governance and Reputation, Michaela Healey, said the grants are recognition of the vital role that these organisations play in strengthening communities.
The NAB Foundation $50,000 grant is helping to fund the extension of the Be Aware Out Here (BOAH) program to more Australians who live and work in rural and remote Australia. BAOH aims to create a hidden army of people within local communities who are empowered with the knowledge, understanding, and confidence to improve the mental health of themselves, their friends, loved ones and the community as a whole.
