AdMental is an entertaining event harnessing the power of marketing and advertising to help grow our collective understanding of mental health and wellbeing.
Inspired by ‘The Pitch’ segment on the television show The Gruen Transfer, two emerging creatives are mentored by advertising agencies and tasked with creating an advertisement to promote mental health. The advertisements are shown to the audience and our expert judging panel, then discussed, and a winner chosen. The winner receives the Geoff Robertson Memorial Award and a one year scholarship to Award School.
AdMental presented by Adelaide Advertising and Design Club (AADC), SA Health’s Office of Public Health, the Mental Health Coalition of South Australia and the Don Dunstan Foundation. Each year this team works on a brief that targets a specific mental health message.
The organising committee is made up of;
Kath Thomas representing SA Health’s Office of Public Health
Louise Pascale and Anna Jeavons representing the Mental Health Coalition of South Australia
Joe Godsell representing Adelaide Advertising and Design Club
Ritchie Hollands representing the Don Dunstan Foundation
