Windsor Road Private Clinic “The Windsor Road Private Clinic Masquerade Ball 2019”
Mental illness is very common. One in five Australians aged 16-85 experience a mental illness in any year. The most common mental illnesses are depression, anxiety and substance abuse. PVF is committed towards removing the stigma of mental illness in communities, through connections and conversations.
This annual fundraising event ensures that our commitment towards supporting and running dedicated programs is achieved.
The keynote speaker is Dr Geoff Toogood, a Melbourne cardiologist and mental health advocate who founded the CrazySocks4Docs in 2017 and the movement has gained national and international attention. Dr Toogood will be talking on his life experience and his work to bring awareness around mental health illness.
Join us for a night of canapés, three course dinner, live music and entertainment, raffles, auctions and dancing.
The mask we wear at the Masquerade Ball symbolises the mask we often hide behind when confronted with mental illness. You can bring your own mask or purchase one on entry for $20.
