International Women’s Day – Tuesday 8 March

MHACA attended a fantastic International Women’s Fair Day event on the Alice Springs Hospital Lawns on Tuesday 8 March.

An initiative of Tangentyere Council and the Alice Springs Women’s Shelter for International Women’s Day, the fair celebrated the talents and hard work of women from Alice Springs and town camp communities.

The MHACA stall asked fair goers to describe a small activity they could do regularly to keep themselves mentally healthy – in return for a MHACA water bottle filled with icy water – perfect for a hot day in Alice Springs!

These ‘mental health promises’ were written on coloured pieces of paper and stuck to poster boards to inspire other fair goers to think about the small actions that we can each take as individuals to keep ourselves mentally healthy.
