What a fantastic Mental Health Month! During the month of October our team of staff and volunteers were busy getting involved in lots of community events and expos – helping to raise awareness for mental health and how our organisation supports kids living in families affected by mental illness.
Some of the things we got up to included: Healthy Minds and Wellbeing Expo, Wollongong Walk of Pride and Mental Health Expo, Wellness Walk and the Sutherland Hospital Mental Health Expo.
We would like to thank all our volunteers who participated in our Mental Health Month events and all wonderful people we met along the way.
It is also important for us to remember that although Mental Health Month is finished for another year, we still need to work together year-round to support those experiencing mental illness and their families and children. Together we can make a difference!
