OneFortyOne supporting local teenagers

Friday 25 Oct 2019

 
OneFortyOne, in partnership with The LifeChanger Foundation will further boost the mental health of teenagers living in Mount Gambier. The LifeChanger Foundation identifies and develops inspiring mentors within communities and delivers holistic self-development workshops for teens, creating and sustaining safe and resilient communities.

On Wednesday 9 October 2019, at the Lifechanger TR1BE event in Melbourne, OneFortyOne announced it would fund the delivery of the LifeChanger community program to up to 250 students at Grant High School, Mount Gambier.

Linda Cotterill from OneFortyOne said “being involved with LifeChanger made sense, we get to grow an existing relationship with Grant High School in a meaningful way and at the same time do something that really resonates with our people, their families and the Mount Gambier community.”

The support includes the capacity building of over 20 OneFortyOne mentors and AU$25,000 for the rollout of the program which encourages positive, self-identity development. The program unites and builds sustainable, safe and resilient communities through a combination of face-to-face Mentor Development Workshops, Awaken the Hero workshops for teens (11-15yrs) and a supportive, digital interaction.

Linda said, “suicide is the leading cause of death among Australian children and teens and Mount Gambier is no exception. We look forward to being part of the LifeChanger movement and helping our youth feel more supported by their community.” The LifeChanger program will be delivered at Grant High School from early 2020.
