Hat party raises mental health awareness
Costumes, hats and crazy headpieces made for a colourful day in the town square last Friday.
The Mad Hatter Tea Party for Mental Health Week aimed to reduce stigma and create better connections in the community for mental health and wellbeing services, agencies and groups.
The day was complete with family-friendly activities and games for children to enjoy during school holidays.
Headspace Albany, Albany Halfway House Association, Rotary Club of Albany City — Western Australia, Relationships Australia WA, Depression Support Network Albany Inc, and Amity Health Albany were some of the local services that were present on the day.
