Join us for an extraordinary morning of compassion, empowerment, and heartfelt connections as we come together to uplift and support women’s mental health.

We invite you to our Women in Mental Health High Tea, where we’ll be shining a light on Breakthrough research in women’s mental health.

Throughout the event, we’ll be hosting speakers who will share their stories of resilience, strength, and what they are doing to help create a life free from mental illness.

Your generous contributions will go directly towards funding mental health research and initiatives aimed at destigmatising mental health challenges for women.

Let’s gather on the beautiful Stamford Plaza on North Terrace, on Friday 18 August, at 9.30 am (for a 10 am start), where our guests will indulge in a glass of bubbles on arrival, and a delightful high tea.
This is an event to support women and all genders are welcome.

Magda Pearce, Lived experience, Breakthrough Foundation Advocate

Working at Breakthrough has been an important step in changing the narrative of what Magda and her family’s life had become after the tragic death of Magda’s older son, Lukasz. This allowed her to find a sense of purpose through her work and, in turn, allowed her younger son, Ricky, to be a child.
