We are here newsbite (16 October 2020)
It’s Mental Health Week and we have some events, strategies and tools to help you look after your mental health and wellbeing.

It’s Mental Health Week and we’re encouraging you to openly discuss how you are feeling, and check in with your peers.

If you are interested in learning how you can look after your mental health and support the wellbeing of our community, join our free forum ‘Start the Conversation – mental health and wellbeing forum’ on Thursday, 22 October from 3-6pm.

The City of Playford’s Mayor Glenn Docherty will open the forum, and welcome master of ceremonies and key speaker Nathan Bolton, member of the SA Premier’s Council on Suicide Prevention. Nathan will be joined by two key speakers who are passionate about creating good mental health for all – Anthony Hart and Khadija Gbla.

Note: During these sessions we will be discussing sensitive topics which may be a trigger point for you. We have safe spaces available if you need a break, and members of the Skylight Mental Health team available to provide you support.

‘Start the conversation’ is an initiative of the City of Playford possible thanks to funding received by the Northern Communities Health Foundation.
