Walking together

October 5, 2015

As part of mental health week 2015, mental health workers, consumers and carers in the Peel and Rockingham area joined together for a walk for recovery.

United by personal experience, people came to take part in the walk and hear stories of hope from people who have lived with mental illness and recovered to live meaningful and productive lives.

The event, open to all, was a fantastic opportunity to raise awareness of mental health, share stories of recovery, meet with families and carers, as well as showcase the assistance available from local community organisations.
