Past Events


CAN Project: 2017 Youth Speaker Series


Look out for more info on this project coming soon!


CAN Project: King of the Hill Skate Series


The Skate Series will be run in February and March 2017 and aims to have a strong focus on promotion of mental health services and reducing the stigma associated with accessing them; in particular for young males aged 12-25. We are partnering with Headspace to include specific branding of the series to help change young people’s view on mental health and being mentally healthy.

The competitions will run over 5 weekends, with qualifiers each being based at one of the 4 council skate parks and finals being held at Mills Park in Gosnells.
