Coolgardie goes Blue for Mental Health

Published on Wednesday, 11 October 2023 at 8:46:46 AM

Today, the Coolgardie community came together at the Coolgardie Community Recreation Centre for the Big Blue Table event, celebrating Mental Health Month this October.

The mission was simple: tackle mental health stigma, promote conversations about well-being, and create safe spaces.

During the event, community members shared a meal and engaged in meaningful conversations about mental health. The event seamlessly combined important discussions with a relaxed atmosphere, much like enjoying a comforting beef and gravy roll.

The event had a significant impact. Generous attendees raised $147.70 for Beyond Blue, an organization supporting individuals with mental health challenges. These funds will help facilitate essential conversations, highlighting the power of community support.

We extend our gratitude to Ann, a dedicated volunteer who prepared the delicious meal, and to Centercare and Anglicare for their invaluable support in promoting mental health awareness at our event.

In summary, the Big Blue Table event united the Coolgardie community and showcased the influence of collective effort in supporting those facing mental health challenges.
