Throughout the past 18 months there has been much discussion about Mental Health issues arising from the Covid virus pandemic, however there has been little discussion from the media about how to fix it .
 
Readers may not be aware that October was "National Mental Health Month " and that Rotary in Australia conducts  a " Lift the Lid on mental health " day
as an awareness and  fundraiser. 
 
But did you know that Rotary has been addressing this infliction for nearly 40 years through its Australian Rotary Health organisation, supported by Rotary Districts and Clubs throughout Australia.
 
Let me tell you about the Australian Rotary Health organisation and its work   and the LIFT THE LID Program.      
             
Did anybody watch the Paralympics on TV these past weeks ? It was inspiring to see how people with  disabilities strived to perform and overcome that disability just to compete and be among others with similar disability. It was good to hear that  Medalists will now be given a financial benefit. Maybe it might help cover their ongoing expenses. 
But the focus of this story is Daniel Michel,  Boccia champion . You probably have read his story, if not you will find it at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daniel_Michel

Congratulations Daniel , a job well done. Lets hope you continue with your selected sport and pursue your dreams .

About Our Club's Territory  

Being surrounded by national parks, Engadine has within its territory , some of the most spectacular coast line and bush land in this state . As you enter the district from either the north, south or west , you soon become aware of  the surrounding National Parks and the rugged nature of the countryside . The Royal National Park is  Australia's First dedicated national park and the world's second. In the Heathcote National park, the ridges and drier slopes are covered in forest dominated by angophoras and eucalypts such as bloodwood, greygum, Sydney peppermint, and scribbly gum. Following the upper reaches of the Woronora River leads to the Woronora Dam and reservoir which form part of Sydney's water supply  

Photos of some of the local Scenes appear in the above Carousel. They are Lady Carrington Drive National Park , Woronora Dam and Reservoir , Stanwell  Park from Bald Hill , on the Woronora River are   Kingfisher Pool, Engadine Lagoon and The Needles , and finally Historic Helensburgh with original Railway tunnel (1884) and Station (1889) reference Helensburgh Historical Society
