Tick­ets like hot­cakes

Joondalup Weekender - - News -

KOONDOOLA d474738 BLACK Swan Health’s in­au­gu­ral Youth Ball is al­ready hav­ing much suc­cess – all tick­ets have been snapped up.

To be held this Fri­day as part of Men­tal Health Week, the “event with a twist” will trans­form the Novo­tel Ho­tel ball­room into a par­al­lel world of eclec­ti­cism where noth­ing is quite as it seems.

The ball is a free event for peo­ple aged 15 to 20, themed on Tim Bur­ton’s quirky fan­tasy-filled film Through the Look­ing Glass.

Co-or­di­nated by Black Swan Health’s headspace Joon­dalup and Os­borne Park cen­tres, the evening aims to pro­mote men­tal health aware­ness and sup­port ser­vices for young peo­ple.

“We are re­ally ex­cited to be cel­e­brat­ing our in­au­gu­ral Youth Ball to cel­e­brate young peo­ple and all of their amaz­ing strength and re­silience when it comes to their men­tal health,” Joon­dalup op­er­a­tions man­ager Ciara Crotty said.

“It has been de­signed by our young peo­ple for our young peo­ple and aims to re­duce the stigma as­so­ci­ated with men­tal health and to pro­mote sui­cide preven­tion.

“We are look­ing for­ward to a great night of cel­e­bra­tion ahead.”
