Fine Art Exhibition The Major Beneficiary for 2015 will be:
Australian Rotary Health (ARH): Depression Research
* Depression is the leading cause of disability worldwide and is predicted to be the leading cause of burden of disease by 2030, ahead of heart disease.
* Most Australians have had some experience with anxiety or depression, whether they've experienced it themselves or had family, friends or work colleagues go through it. One in three Australians will experience clinical depression and/or anxiety during their lifetime.
* Increased research through ARH is facilitating greater scientific and general awareness of depression and anxiety which lead to disability and mortality. ARH is dedicated to reducing the impact of anxiety and depression on individuals, families, and society as a whole. Such ongoing and expanding research ensures that Australians of all ages, from all walks of life will lead healthier lives.
ARH requires continued support as it aims to increase its funding to allow for the allocation of more research grants and to ensure that ARH maintains its position as the largest independent organisation undertaking mental health research.
There are three ways ARH funds mental health research. They are:
Mental Health Research Grants
Ian Scott PhD Scholarships
Postdoctoral Fellowships
Yes, ARH is shining a light on mental health with particular emphasis on depression. Rotary Club of Samford Valley has therefore chosen Australian Rotary Health (ARH): Depression Research as its major beneficiary for this year’s Signatures Fine Art Exhibition. The Governor General, Sir Peter Cosgrove, is Australian Rotary Health’s newest Patron.
