Emerald feels the good vibrations
EMERALD residents felt the good vibrations last weekend as part one of the free community mental health awareness event opened to a loving crowd.
“We have had a really good turnout,” Good Vibrations part one organiser Sharri Baker said.
“I think the speakers enlightened a lot of people with the different things they were talking about and the knowledge they were passing on. There were lots of interesting things for people to take home.”
Ms Baker hopes Good Vibrations becomes an annual event.
“I would love to put Good Vibrations together as an annual event – to have this again next year as an open day to mental health week would be great,” she said.
“Hopefully in the coming years we are able to get a little bit more exposure so we can involve a lot more organisations and schools.”
She would like more people to be proactive about their well-being.
“Don’t wait until there is a mental illness until you start to do something. Look after your mental health and well-being before something happens,” she said.
