Lost Bird Found
Mental health issues affect one in five Australians.
Mental Health Month in October annually is an opportunity to raise awareness and highlight how mental health impacts the lives of many.
Lost Bird Found Project is an initiative to encourage conversations about mental illness and make a positive impact on the community through the creation of handcrafted birds that are hidden around North Sydney and beyond… and it's finders keepers!
How does the project work?
Each bird has a card attached with details of this webpage, Facebook and Instagram, as well as links to mental health support services and community activities. Participants are encouraged to follow us on Facebook and Instagram, share images of their birds online and help spread the message.
Where do the birds come from? Workshops!
Community organisations and groups, as well as individuals, host workshops to hand craft each unique bird - and the workshops are on now, come get involved.
(If you would like to set up your own bird making workshop as part of a team building exercise, within your organisation or with a group of friends, then please get in touch as we would love to get you involved.)
