Youth mental health charity Stand Tall, announced its 2020 Event will be live-streamed to thousands of high school students across Australia on 4 June from the International Convention Centre Sydney. The event has been reimagined into a digital format to go ahead under COVID-19 restrictions.With more than 20,000 students expected to tune in, Stand Tall 2020 will bring together some of Australia's leading young musicians, athletes and inspirational speakers to share stories of hope, courage and resilience. This year’s line-up includes Sam Cawthorn, Michael Crossland, Emma Carey, Timomatic, Derek Rabelo, Anna Cocquerel and Tony Hoang, among others.

Australia’s largest youth wellbeing event aims to address the increasingly high incidences of mental health issues in young people, inspiring attendees to change the course of their lives and build hope for the future. More than half (55%) of secondary students say they don’t have any hope for the future, while experts warn of the potentially devastating impact of COVID-19 on young people’s mental health.Traditionally a one-day annual gathering at ICC Sydney, Stand Tall 2020 is set to increase its reach by more than 100% this year as it goes virtual. Australia’s premiere convention venue will utilise audio visual technology to live stream the show to thousands of schools and students across Australia.

Premier of NSW, Gladys Berejiklian, says Stand Tall is driving important awareness and opening up the conversation around mental health amongst young people. ”The Stand Tall live stream event is a wonderful resource being made available to schools across Australia, providing stories of hope and courage to students.We know how challenging the past few months have been for students having to adapt to learning from home and missing their friends. It’s important we acknowledge the impact this may have had on the mental wellbeing of the community and provide resources to support those in need.”
