“Gandel Foundation aims to build stronger, more resilient, more vibrant and inclusive communities by supporting programs and activities that address the underlying causes of inequity and empower people to improve their well-being. Mental illness and mental wellbeing, especially within the most vulnerable groups such as women and young people, are significant and growing challenges for the whole community. Such a large-scale social issue needs a whole-of-society approach, and it needs a greater vision and commitment from our political leadership to address it appropriately and effectively. Many positive things have already been done – but that is only a start! We believe that supporting Australians for Mental Health will help give a voice to those with mental illness - and enable advocacy with decision-makers to help bring about the systemic change we need.”
-Vedran Drakulić OAM, Gandel Foundation CEO

- Leonard Vary, CEO of The Myer Foundation
