Mental Health Week events
A NEW Norfolk-based mental health inpatient facility is holding a series of activities to celebrate Mental Health Week this week.
Mental Health Week runs from October 8-14, and Millbrook Rise Centre is holding a client art exhibition, a mindfulness adventure trail, odd sock day, tie dyeing, sports activities, karaoke, and a barbecue to which clients have invited family and friends.
The centre is handing out participation awards to clients, and well as vouchers donated by the New Norfolk Banjo’s Bakery.
The theme of Mental Health Week this year is “stronger together”. The concept behind the theme is embracing the idea of communities working together to build resilience, support each other through tough times, celebrate diversity and promote the things we can do to maintain our mental health, and encourage people to seek help when they need it.
