Healthy pizza date
YANGEBUP Family Centre is encouraging men to speak up about mental health ahead of RU OK? Day.
The family centre will hold a Dads and Kids Pizza Night on September 11 to promote connection and wellbeing in the community.
The night is open to dads, granddads, uncles and other significant male figures and will feature a range of activities including construction and science activities, a giant Jenga game, a photo booth and face painting, as well as resources, information and support material.
Yangebup Family Centre manager Samantha Williams said they wanted to encourage dads to network with other fathers in a relaxed environment while spending fun, quality time with their children.
“Parenting can be challenging at times, and we want to get across the message that locals can find support and also ask ‘are you OK?’ at our local centre,” she said. “We try to create opportunities based around people’s interests.”
The Pizza Night will be from 5pm at the centre. Places are limited and bookings are essential.
