IN an average Australian classroom of 30 students, seven will be dealing with a significant mental health issue, two of them will seek help, and five will suffer in silence.

That is why batyr has presented their program to more than 42,000 students in the country, including Muswellbrook High School pupils.

Thanks to the Where There’s A Will foundation, presenters from the mental health program visited the Year 12 students on Tuesday.

Upper Hunter based charity Where There’s a Will, was established by Will Carrigan’s parents, after the 24-year old tragically lost his battle with depression on Christmas Day, 2015.

His mother Pauline said she was excited for local students to have the opportunity to attend the program.
