BreakFree: Free the Mind, Free the Child
The BreakFree National Campaign was chosen by the National Conference in January 2014. It promotes the positive mental health and wellbeing of all young people, including the 1151 children in immigration detention centres around the country. This issue was identified to be of extreme importance as it affects many young people around the globe. The Australian Young Christian Students have decided on two asks:
- End Child Detention
- Have psychologists and mental health workers avaliable for children in detention.
The third ask will be chosen in July of this year after students have examined the mental health of young people in their area of the country.
Australia Day 2014 will be the kick start to the new campaign! Get involved on Facebook @ the AYCS Aus Day 2014 Action: BreakFree
