SPARE CAPACITY LAUNCH

ON TUESDAY MAY 15TH, COME AND SUPPORT THE LAUNCH OF SPARE CAPACITY, SEE THE PREMIERE EPISODE OF “THE FIRST GIANT HURDLE’, RECEIVE A FREE SELF-CARE GOODIE & GET DISCOUNTS TO THE SPARE CAPACITY WORKSHOPS!

Spare Capacity is a social enterprise that aims to educate and empower women with self-care tools to combat the effects of mental illness. Spare Capacity's founder, Nikolina Mabic’s journey with anxiety and depression led her to feel frustrated with the prevention and treatment methods available to sufferers and the first concepts of Spare Capacity were born.

Nikolina received a Hobsons Bay Community Fund Grant, which enabled her to put on a free 2 day wellbeing workshop for young women,with the help of Hobsons Bay Up in April 2017 during National Youth Week. The participants learnt psychological, physical and nutritional tools to help them combat mental illness. They all received a goodie bag filled with teas, chocolate, yoga mat, gratitude journal and much more.

Have a look at what those two days contained here:
