Mentalicious is a short video competition where students are challenged to create a short video exploring an annual theme. The 2021 theme is ‘Imagine a Mental Health Revolution’.
The competition is free to enter, and winning entries are given a $500 cash prize. The competition closes on the 12 September 2021, and is split into two categories, one for Years 7-9 and one for Years 10-12.
Students are encouraged to get involved in this competition, which works to increase awareness and erode the stigma that surrounds the topic of mental health.
