It’s been a difficult year for the Dubbo community as they navigate the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. The team at headspace Dubbo are eager to bring back some colour and fun in celebration of headspace Day on Wednesday 21 October.
Amy Mines, headspace Dubbo Community and Youth Engagement Coordinator, says this year’s headspace Day is a chance for people to come together and do something they enjoy.
“This year we’re asking schools and businesses to join us in celebrating headspace Day by hosting an event. It can be a morning tea, you can wear green, slime a teacher – the opportunities are endless,” Ms Mines said.
While fundraising for the centre is welcome, the team will be paying it forward by directing money raised back into the school, business or community group who raised it.
“We’ll be using money raised to host headspace events or activities within the organisation that donated it. That way we can create free tailored events to promote mental health awareness,” Ms Mines said.
To register your event, visit the headspace Dubbo Facebook page and follow the sign-up instructions, and the team will be in touch.
headspace Dubbo is operated by lead agency Marathon Health, and is supported by funding from Western NSW Primary Health Network through the Australian Government’s PHN Program.
