Terry was delighted to receive our contribution and outlined the work of AHR in supporting mental health research in Australia (read a full list of AHR research grants). 
He specifically talked about the research conducted by Dr Lauren McLellan into youth anxiety and depression and the Cool Kids Program, which currently receives funding from ARH - more information.

 Did you know for a once-off payment of $100 you can become a Friend of Australian Rotary Health for life?
As the end of the year draws near does your club want to honour someone who has made a special contribution? Are you looking for a gift for someone who has everything? Make them a Friend of Australian Rotary Health and in so doing support medical research in Australia. It is as simple as phoning 8837 1900.

The 2015 North Ryde Fun proceeds of $16,695 are being distributed to research and treatment programs for youth mental health and other worthy Rotary Projects.
This year, Project Director Maggie Alexander, presented $2500 to the Macquarie University Centre for Emotional Health to fund 5 free places on their Cool Kids Program. Centre Director,
Prof. Jennifer Hudson, accepted the donation on behalf of the Centre, thanking the Club and saying that it will directly help young people overcome anxiety and depression.
