Published: 2 October 2023

Find new ways to connect, socialise and nourish mental health and physical wellbeing this October for Mental Health Month.

Throughout October, local organisations and groups will be showcasing events that help empower our community to be more healthy, connected and resilient. 

Cardinia Shire Mayor Cr Tammy Radford said Council will be promoting wellbeing focussed events throughout the month.

“We know our community wants to be healthier, better connected and more resilient, that’s why Council is helping to raise awareness about mental wellbeing this October”, Mayor Radford said. 

Henty Ward Councillor and mental health advocate Cr Carol Ryan encourages residents to take up as many Mental Health Month activities as they can. 

“Whether you try checking in with those you care about, take a short daily walk through a local park to boost your mood, or challenge yourself to the Cardinia Fun Run and Walk – the smallest step can have a hugely positive impact on your mental health and the mental health of those around you,” Cr Ryan said.
