Each year WayAhead provides more than 50 small grants to community groups and organisations across NSW to help get your Mental Health Month project or event off the ground.

A Mental Health Month project or event is a great way to encourage awareness of mental health, and social and emotional wellbeing in your community. It can decrease stigma, and empower people to seek help, for themselves or others.

Judging Panel
Our independent judging panel consists of mental health experts and professionals from the sector as well as individuals who identify with or specialise in a particular category (Youth, LGBTQIA+, CALD, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander).

We provide approximately 50 grants of either $500 or $1000 across the following categories

  • General Grant
