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.
