听2020 MENtal Brekky

In Episode 2, during a time of lockdown, we reimagined one of the most important events on the College calendar

The annual MENtal Brekky, run by the Chris Yeung Fund, has quickly become one of the must-attend functions on the annual 乐播传媒视频鈥檚 College calendar. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the 2020 event was cancelled.

However, organisers were determined to continue the important conversation around mental illness and teamed up with Radio Ballarat 3BA to arrange a series of interviews talking about the Chris Yeung Fund and exploring the complex issues around youth mental health during a time of crisis.
