Following the loss of a friend and family member to suicide at age 19, Rotary Hutt City was approached for support with a mental health awareness festival.
The club welcomed the opportunity to assist with tackling this challenging problem, and provided funding to defray the costs of the inaugural festival in 2022 and a second event in 2023. Club members and friends also assisted at the 2023 festival.
The festivals feature live music, and talks about mental health. Profits are donated to mental health charities.
