It is with deep sadness that we share the news that our dear friend, Dr John Flett, passed away peacefully on Friday February 21 at the age of 99.
To our sponsors, supporters, families, friends and all other South Australians.
In recent days you may have heard me speak on radio, TV and in the paper on the current state of Little Heroes Foundation and I just wanted to inform you all personally to let you know what reality is for us.
You're never too young to talk about mental health.
It's estimated up to 20 per cent of young children and adolescents experience a mental health condition. Half of all mental illnesses begin by the age of 14.
Additionally, with one in five adults diagnosed with a mental health condition, it's children who are often most impacted and required to take on a greater carer role.
