VicSuper MENtal Brekky

October 23, 2017

St Patrick’s College was proud to host a challenging and emotional event last week when more than 200 people gathered for the second annual VicSuper MENtal Brekky, raising awareness of and funds for those in our community suffering mental illness.

Our thanks are extended to key speakers Jason Trethowan (SPC 1987-91) as the national CEO of headspace, and to John Shanahan (SPC 1967-69) who told of his family’s harrowing experience since his son Nathan Shanahan (SPC 1988-93) succumbed to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder last year.

Thanks also to our major sponsor VicSuper and other supporters who made the event possible and to all those who attended, helping us raise around $15,000 which will be put towards helping those most in need. We look forward to hosting the event again in 2018!
