The Uprising Event and Schools Tour are both run completely free of charge to the schools, and to all youth. Therefore we rely on corporate partnerships and community support to raise the much needed funds to run this event each year.

For those who may not know, suicide is the biggest killer of young Australians and accounts for the deaths of more young people than car accidents! Everyone knows that mental illness in our young people is a growing issue, however not everyone knows how to help.

The Uprising is an annual youth event that brings young people together from all across our region for one night to bring hope to those feeling hopeless. Not only do we encourage them that help is out there, but we give them the numbers to call, the people to talk to, and a way to move forward. We connect young people with support services in the local community and in their schools, so they can get the help they are desperately seeking.

However we all know that if we want to connect with young people we need to do it in a way they can relate to. So each year we ask a famous sportsperson to come along and share how they got to where they are, as well as lots of other entertainment including a live band, hip hop artist, illusionist and fireworks to finish the night off.

This year The Uprising will be held on the 20th of October. Our key speaker is ACT Young Woman of the Year Rachael Stevens who will be sharing her story of overcoming mental illness - it is a life changing message. Because we want this message to reach as many young people as possible, this year we are also doing a schools tour where we bring the message of hope in to the local high schools. In the week leading up to The Uprising event Rachael will speak in up to 10 schools about overcoming mental illness and help equip them in practical ways to reach out, and help others do the same.

We hope that you will join us for an incredible night to help bring this message of hope to as many young people as possible.
