OUR GARDEN ROOMS
As a commitment to supporting mental health awareness in Australia, The Banksia Project hosts free quarterly Garden Room events. Each focuses on a different mental health topic and includes a panel of speakers who share lived experiences and learnings to an open forum audience.
Previous Garden Rooms have included Music and Mental Health, Surviving Financial Stress, Sexuality, Gender and Society and Mental Health in the Workplace.
