Mackay Mental Health Wellbeing Fair
Celebrating World Mental Health Week
About 1000 people attended the annual Mental Health Fair at the Mackay Showgrounds and organisers say they're thrilled to see so many people openly talking about mental health. The event included artists, the Mackay Cutters, and support groups such as Australian Rotary Health headspace Mackay, Black Dog Ride and Selectability.
The event is not only a chance for people in the community to get help and support, but also allows groups to get a better understanding of what's available and help refer people to the best organisation to support them.
headspace Mackay also had their trailer at the event, young people and adults had the opportunity to bond and verse each other in gaming......as part of community engagement and mental health awareness....
