let’s help make a difference

Imagine a young, beautiful girl who was talented, smart and endearing, with the world at her feet. This was Amanda Flynn.

However, beyond her skin of beauty, hid an insidious mental illness that consumed her and ultimately took her away from the world. Amanda committed suicide at 27 years of age, after suffering years of anxiety.

Today, her family has set up her namesake charity, the Amanda Flynn Foundation. The foundation has been established to provide funding grants, to assist charitable organisations who embark on helping the ever-growing number of young people in Australia who are affected by anxiety and other mental health conditions.

It’s these sensitive young Australians, who range from little children in their early years, to 25 year old young adults, who need our understanding, need our help and need our care before it’s too late.

giving life to others is her legacy

The statistics are alarming.
Let’s help them learn to live.

Mental health illness and anxiety conditions within our young community are growing at an alarming rate.

Did you know that 1 in 5 young people suffer anxiety and 1 in 4 suffer mental health conditions?

Through the Amanda Flynn Foundation (AFF), let’s work together to give children and young people the skills and strategies to help them overcome challenges; to help them realise everybody has a purpose in life and a contribution to make. It’s just some need a little more help than others to find their way. These charities are helping the ever-growing number of young people in Australia who are affected by anxiety and other mental health conditions.

The Amanda Flynn Foundation’s AFF Grant Program will make a positive difference to young lives.

The Amanda Flynn Foundation’s AFF Grant Program supports practical, locally-based initiatives, which will make a positive difference to the mental health and well being of sensitive and at risk children and young people living in Queensland.

Through the AFF Grant Program, the Amanda Flynn Foundation will partner with a number of charitable organisations each year, who share their common aim. Specifically, helping to prevent anxiety, depression, self-harm and suicide in children and young people.

Organisations are invited to express an interest in funding from the foundation for amounts between $5,000 to $50,000. These grants will be awarded for 12 months from the date of payment. The Grantee must be involved in charitable works for children and young people, in the area of anxiety, depression and self harm. The AFF will give preference to organisations that work consistently in the following areas of:

  • Mental health and well being of sensitive and at risk children and young people aged up to 25 years.
  • Prevention of anxiety, depression, self-harm and suicide in children and young people.

At the Amanda Flynn Foundation, we believe that access to support and skill development at the right time, can help sensitive and vulnerable children and youth to overcome mental health challenges in order to reach their full potential.
