Mental Health Week Picnic - 10 October 2020
The 2020 Mental Health Week theme was
Strengthening Our Community - Live. Learn. Work. Play.
Every year Mental Health Week is a great opportunity to boost the mental health of our community by:
• Encouraging each of us to support and look out for one another
• Promoting mental health literacy and self-care tips
• Raising awareness of mental health issues and reducing stigma associated with seeking support
• Sharing resources and advice for LGBTQIA+ people living in the south west.
This event was possible thanks to the support from the Western Australian Association for Mental Health (WAAMH), Mental Health Commission and Lotterywest.
Busselton Rainbow Dog Walk - 7 March 2020
With 87 rainbow doggies taking part in a 2km or 5km group walk along the stunning Busselton foreshore path we had a fun morning with costumes, games, tricks and heaps of prizes. Big thanks to our amazing event sponsors including Cloutz Events, Cooper Studio, The Ship Inn, Busselton MultiService, Brew+, Vasse Vets, Viva Books, Hype, Urban Coffee House, Cafe D'Amore, Australia Post, The Good Egg, Blue Buddha, Shabby Duck, and Dunsborough Vets.
This event raised over $1900 for Busselton Hospice Care Inc. - a community funded service based at the Geographe Bay Centre, enabling people in the south west to have the best possible access to high quality care at the end of life, and quality, compassionate palliative care and bereavement support.
