Acknowledgment of Lived Experience

We would like to recognise those with lived experience of mental health conditions in Australia. We acknowledge that we can only provide quality care through valuing, respecting, and drawing upon the lived experience and expert knowledge of consumers, their families, carers and friends, staff, and the local communities. We acknowledge their contribution to the development of mental health resources.

Freezin' for a Reason - Community Connections Breakfast

Late last month Billabong Clubhouse organised a community breakfast for local organisations to raise awareness of our program delivery and the Billabong Clubhouse. To add some 'spice' to the event, we created an ice bath challenge for five community champions.

They were challenged to raise $500 each, and if they succeeded, they would take a 1-minute plunge into an icy bath early in the morning.

We are thrilled to report that each champion exceeded their fundraising goal, raising a total of $3018 for Backpack beds for the Homeless. This amount surpassed our collective target of $2000.

We extend our gratitude to all our community partners who participated in the event and raised funds for a worthy cause. We are grateful for your support.

Luke Kennedy - Enlighten, Motivate & Achieve (Presented by Billabong Clubhouse)

Billabong Clubhouse is proud to present our guest speaker for 2023 - Luke Kennedy.

Luke Kennedy is a mental health advocate, best selling author, & one of Australia's most sought-after speakers for primary & secondary schools, corporate events, and even prisons.

​​"After almost 20 years in education, Luke is the most inspiring speaker I've heard." - Andrew Rixby, Teacher, Cessnock.
​"He's the best we've had." - Optus

Luke's presentation isn't your typical bad-guy-gone-good story, through his compelling and thought provoking story, Luke's message instils deep changes in Resilience, Motivation, Mental Health, Confidence, and Self-Awareness.

Luke will be speaking to the community and our members this October for Mental Health Awareness Month.

More information on how to secure tickets for this unmissable event will be released soon.
