Spread knowledge not stigma!
Paws of our pet dogs and positive thinking will help the Hills Shire residents create a healthy and happy shire on the 31st August 2014. After three fantastic annual events since 2011, Mind Connections Specialist Mental Health Services present 'Pawsitive Steps towards Mental Health' in partnership with the Hills Shire Council. The event is a giant leap in reducing the stigma associated with mental illnesses.
This year, the event will be on August 31st from 9am – 10am at Castle Hill Showground. The organisers are happy to open opportunities to all mental health service providers in the Shire and surrounds to showcase their services. Our mission of combining all mental health service providers to be available to the community for promotion of wellbeing, healthy lifestyle, harmony and happiness in addition to prevention of mental illness are much appreciated by the local community.
Last year, politicians, Olympic swimmer Petria Thomas and leaders of community groups walked side by side to solidarity and that they were proud to be part of a great cause.
This year, the location is ideal, at the Castle Hill Dog Arena and Pavilion. The event has been revamped to make everyone, canines and humans alike, feel special. We look forward to a day that allows us to continue our great relationships with sponsors, designers, press, and the community.
With 10 weeks to go, organisers have kicked into top gear and we are committed to making this event as memorable as can be. Anyone interested in getting involved as a sponsor, community member, mental health service provider, NGO, member of the press, or volunteering should contact Dr Padmini Howpage via e-mail email@example.com
