The Mental Health Committee was formed in 2013 by members of the fourth generation of the Myer family. The Committee’s grantmaking focus rests on upstream interventionist activities and programs in the youth mental health sector. The Committee seeks to balance its grantmaking across program delivery and research initiatives and looks to award multiple grants each financial year.
In response to the 2019-20 Australian Black Summer bushfires, the Mental Health Committee is prioritising support for communities affected by the bushfires.
The Committee is presently not accepting unsolicited applications.
