Bipolar Bears

The Bipolar Bears have been playing in Australia for over 20 years entertaining audiences to reduce stigma and promote mental health and wellbeing. The band taps into young people’s appreciation of music and provides information on understanding when you have a mental issue and how to seek help.

The band members are passionate about promoting understanding and acceptance of mental illness in our wider community. Through their music and personal stories they’re keen to stamp out stigma around mental illness and spread a message of hope and recovery and full participation in life.

The School is committed to the welfare of its students and has a wellbeing program embedded into the curriculum. There are many wellbeing activities planned throughout the School year with a full program of inspirational and entertaining speakers.
