Come down for a special day of celebrating children on Sunday 25 October. There will be 25 stalls with different organisations from around town hosting FREE fun, interactive games and activities for children and families.

The 2020 theme of Children’s Week is based on Article 15 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child: ‘Children have the right to meet together and to join groups and organisations, as long as this does not stop other people from enjoying their rights.'

Find out more information about local initiatives that support children at the Child Friendly Alice stall at the North end of the Todd Mall as part of the 25th October Market day.

Congrats Sarah Piper and MHACA ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Well deserved. Never have I come across such an awesome Mental Health pychosocial support service! Amazing supportive organisation with fantastic staff, participants & peers!! 👍

Thank you to everyone who came to Stress Less In The Park on Friday. It was beautiful weather for the event, and more than 350 people attended. Stress Less in the Park is a feature event of Mental Health Week and provides a community focus on mental health and wellbeing. The event aims to break down stigma in the community around mental health conditions, raise awareness about local service options and provide educational information for consumers and carers.

The event is in its’ seventh year. 18 service providers were present and sharing information with community members and Robyn Lambley MLA provided an opening address. The event also included a Welcome to Country, musical performances, kids activities, and refreshments.

The event was organised by the Mental Health Association of Central Australia, with the support of a local committee, and implemented a COVID Safety Plan.

A special thankyou to the Northern Territory PHN for your support of this event, and the Alice Springs Town Council.

It was great to have Margaret Smith and Teresa Nipper from the Uti Kulintjaku project at the NPY Women's Council share information about the meditation app they developed with Smiling Mind at the MHACA Morning Tea, and the Central Australian Aboriginal Congress Health Promotion team share information about the harms of smoking. We enjoyed the meditation and there were lots of discussions around ways we can support good mental health!
