Positive Vibes Foundation proudly presents the Windsor

Positive Vibes Foundation aims to remove the stigma of mental illness by changing attitudes in the Community, making Connections with like-minded organisations, and through Conversations with individuals and groups.  Our Masquerade Ball is an entertaining evening that brings together  the Hills community to increase awareness of mental health

Our Masquerade Ball is an annual event held in October, in the Mental Health Month.  This year it will be on

12 October 2018
@ the beautiful garden side venue
Biviano’s (628 Old Northern Road Dural), from 6.30 – 11.30 pm

The mask we wear at the Masquerade Ball symbolises the mask we often hide behind when confronted with mental illness, either as a sufferer or an observer, and represents the stigma associated with mental illness. At the end of the Masquerade Ball, we remove our masks, symbolising the lifting of the stigma

At each Masquerade Ball, we invite a prominent person in society who has overcome, or has had experience in dealing with mental illness, to be our keynote speaker.  Their talk is inspirational and gives us an opportunity to hear their story.  Past speakers have included Associate Professor Munjed Al Muderis (orthopaedic surgeon and human rights activist) and Deng T Adut (child soldier from Sudan to refugee lawyer

Come hear and meet our keynote speaker for this year – Jake Edwards, an ex-AFL player and son of football legend Allan “Butch” Edwards, who was diagnosed with depression at the age of 19 while on an AFL list.  When his career ended, he spent 4 years escaping his pain through drink, drugs and attempted suicide.

As a survivor, Jake is a strong advocate of mental health awareness and speaks frankly about his experiences, sharing his inspirational story with young adults and corporates across Australia.  Jake founded “Outside The Locker Room” which works alongside sporting clubs, offering mentoring support and education on topics such as drugs, alcohol, depression and suicide.  Outside The Locker Room supports over 2,000 young adults and their families today in our communities.

Jake has spoken at large companies, 50 secondary colleges, and has been in the media on shows such as SEN, Triple M, Studio 10, The Daily Show, Fox Footy, ESPN and Channel 9.
