For the second year, Lights of Christmas has partnered with St Vincent’s Hospital to raise funds for one of Sydney’s oldest and most respected medical institutions. Lights of Christmas provides a platform for the public to support this year’s fundraising project: mental health.
St Vincent’s Hospital Sydney has a long history of providing mental health services as far back as 1868 when the Sisters of Charity opened the first service in Darlinghurst. Through innovative telehealth and online outreach programs, St Vincent’s now provides mental health services to people in rural and remote regions of NSW that would otherwise not be available to them.
“St Vincent’s is thankful to be the Charity Partner of Lights of Christmas for the second year. The support of the community allows us to continue developing our online mental health care services in regional NSW.”
Dr Nicholas Babidge, Clinical Director, Mental Health St Vincent’s Hospital, Sydney
