This audigram is from Stress Less in the Park, a feature event of Mental Health Week that 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. 19 service providers were present and more than 350 people attended. The event 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.
