Stress Less in the Park – a fun morning out in Mental Health Week 2016

‘Stress Less in the Park’ was a fabulous morning celebrating Mental Health Week on the Alice Springs Hospital Lawns on Friday 14 October. The atmosphere was fantastic – everyone was smiling and soaking up the sunshine and the CAAMA live broadcast. The feedback from the public was really positive, and there was the best attendance from schools and community in the three years that ‘Stress Less in the Park’ has been running. There was a great sense of community and camaraderie, with everyone happily engaging with the many service providers who had stalls and entertainment. Alice Springs Mayor Damien Ryan was one of the many who enjoyed the festive buzz. Be sure to join us next year at ‘Stress Less in the Park’ for FUN, FUN and more FUN!
