The 9th annual Mental Health and Wellbeing Expo will be held at the Murray bridge Town Hall this Friday, with this years theme 5 Ways to Wellbeing in Nature.

With special guests including Gardening Australia’s Sophie Thompson who is hosting an interactive workshop, attendees will be encouraged to have an open and safe discussion about mental health.

The Mental Health and Wellbeing Expo, hosted by Uniting Communities, raises awareness about the impacts of stigma and discrimination for people with a mental illness within a rural community and to provide an opportunity for people in rural and remote communities to come together.

 

A garden will be created in the hall’s lobby so people can feel connected to nature with a free potting session for children. There will also be a fee BBQ lunch, live music and giveaways.
