Planting seeds of good mental health

Planting the seeds of good mental health
Carnival in the North a fun look at promoting mental health.

The Carnival in the North is a key annual event in the City of Playford, promoting a community that is inclusive and accessible to all.

The event promotes services available for those living with a mental illness, carers of those living with a mental illness and anyone else interested in making a difference to reduce the stigma of mental illness.

This year’s event has the theme ‘Planting the Seeds for Good Mental Health’.

A feature that is sure to be very popular at this year’s event will be a Dog Kissing Booth, where visitors can cuddle up with a pooch, while there will also be a therapy pony present.

The 45-plus NDIS and community service providers will tailor their offering at this event around the theme.


  • How to make your own wicking boxes;
  • Native plants as food;
  • Playford Men’s Shed;
  • and much more.
This event is all about creating a more inclusive and equitable world for people living with a mental illness and is very popular in our community.

“Through the Carnival in the North, we provide access to NDIS services and we promote the removal of the barriers that some people may find in becoming an active part of our community.”

The Carnival in the North will be held at the John McVeity Centre, 182 Peachey Road, Smithfield Plains, on 9 October (10am to 1pm).
