Upper Hunter Shire Council Mayor Wayne Bedggood is inviting everyone to attend a free presentation in Scone about coping with trauma, stress, depression and mental illness.
Everyone is invited to attend the evening event on Thursday 7 April brought to the community by the NSW Rural Adversity Mental Health Program, the NSW Department of Primary Industries Rural Resilience Program and Council.
“I urge people to take advantage of this timely event, and take a step towards updating their skills and resources to help themselves and others,” Cr Bedggood said.
It will start at 6.30pm at the Scone Administration Centre. There will be a number of short presentations, Q&A, followed by a light supper and the chance to meet local service providers such as psychologist Clayton Rogers.
Find out how to have a conversation with someone you’re worried about, how to help someone at risk of suicide, where to access help, gain a better understanding of emotional resilience, and have strategies to manage.
There will be a light supper so RSVP for catering purposes to Caroline Hayes firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 0407 971 675.
You don’t need to RSVP to come along, just turn up at 6.30pm Thursday 7 April at Council’s Chambers, 135 Liverpool Street in Scone.
The event is free and everyone is welcome to attend.
