About the Project

The Lost Bird Found Community Mental Health Project is run by Council as part of mental health month, where 3D and 2D birds will pop up all around North Sydney and... finders-keepers!

All birds have a little sticker on them directing the finder to Lost Bird Found on facebook.

Here you will find more information about the project, links to mental health support services and community activities, as well as provide an opportunity for conversations around positive mental health. Participants can also upload photos of the birds they have found.

Please contact Camelia Tobia, Access and Inclusion Co-ordinator, 9936 8195 or facebook/lostbirdfoundproject
