Heads Together is a campaign spearheaded by The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry to end stigma and change the conversation on mental health.
Why do we need to change the conversation on Mental Health?
Too often mental health problems are seen as something that happens to other people but we all have mental health and just as we all experience problems with our physical
health, we will all experience pressures to our mental health at some point in our lives.
Currently, for too many people struggling with mental health problems, the fear of being judged or treated differently stops them reaching out for help and talking.
Together we can end this stigma once and for all.
The Thomas Kelly Youth Foundation, through it’s programs “Stay Kind” and “Take Kare” is proud to be associated in raising awareness that we are not alone.
Nine Cares provides a valuable service to individuals and organisations at all levels and draws attention to some of Australia’s most critical issues. For us it’s about using our reach and entertaining while giving back and connecting communities. It’s about media making a difference.

St John Ambulance
In July 2012, 18 year old Thomas Kelly was enjoying a quiet night out with his friends in Kings Cross when he became victim to a senseless and unprovoked coward punch which instantly killed him. This attack, along with other deadly incidents, have shocked our community into action and have been a catalyst for the implementation of measures aimed at recuding alcohol-fuelled violence in our community.
As part of this response, St John Ambulance has partnered with the Thomas Kelly Youth Foundation and the City of Sydney to operate the Take Kare Safe Space, a program that aims to help keep young people safe in Sydney's CBD and Kings Cross on weekends.
