Mental Health


The Mental Health Committee was formed in 2013 by members of the fourth generation of the Myer family.

From 2013 to 2022, the Committee’s grantmaking was focused on upstream interventionist activities and programs in the youth mental health sector, balancing this across program delivery and research initiatives.

From 2023, the Committee has shifted its focus to empowering people with lived experience and community-based organisations to improve mental health outcomes. This focus acknowledges the crucial role that both individual consumers and carers with lived experience are playing and will need to play in reimagining mental health services, and continues the Committee's longstanding practice of supporting small organisations pilot and grow innovative, evidence-informed approaches to improving mental health outcomes within their communities.
