The Positive Vibes Foundation was formed in 2014 by a psychiatrist working in Castle Hill.
The charity was driven by the need to eliminate the stigma around mental health, which at the time was preventing many from seeking treatment.
While the stigma has lessened somewhat today, conversations around mental health are still vital in helping more people within the community to live healthier lives.
Through Positive Vibes’ four core programs – The Hills Women’s Shed, Paw Visits, the Young Healthy Minds Forum and Community Engagement – we are working to make deeper connections and increase the conversation around mental wellbeing.
