Embrace Mental Health Week at Mondo Lounge!

Mondo Lounge

Thursday 28 September 2017

Young people in Mount Alexander Shire are invited to come together to celebrate Mental Health Week at Mondo Lounge youth space on Friday 13 October.

Youth mental health has been identified as a top priority by young people in Mount Alexander Shire. Mental Health Week is a great opportunity for Council to address this important topic.

Mount Alexander Shire Council’s Youth Advisory Group (YAG) is putting on a fun afternoon of activities to promote positive youth mental health and wellbeing.

The slogan for this event is Mental health begins with Me. The event aims to encourage young people to focus on their own mental wellness, reduce the stigma associated with mental illness and raise awareness of pathways that are available to support the community.

“We just want to relax and enjoy ourselves, and we feel that would be a good focus for youth mental health and wellbeing,” said Jade Bujeya, member of Council’s Youth Advisory Group.

“There’s so much overwhelming information out there about mental health, we thought it might be good to bring the focus back to simply taking a minute and enjoying the positive things in life.”

This event is held as part of a series of community events and activities across the shire during Mental Health Week from 8-14 October, coordinated by a partnership of local services and organisations.

So come down and hang out at Mondo Lounge from 3.30pm to 6.00pm on Friday 13 October at the rear of Castlemaine Continuing Education, 30 Templeton Street, Castlemaine.

Try you hand at tie-dyeing or the mural wall, or just chat with friends while enjoying free coffee, hot chocolate, live music, show bags and free food.
