To help celebrate the importance of health and wellbeing the communities of the Bellarine are joining together for several events during Mental Health Week (4-10 October 2015). Mental Health Week aims to activate, educate and engage Victorians through a series of interactive events across the State, culminating in Mental Health Day on Saturday 10 October. Here in Portarlington we will be launching Mental Health Week with the Walk for Wellbeing on Sunday 4th October at 11am. The walk will start and finish on the foreshore at Pier St and is approximately 3 km. A gold coin donation will be used to fund Bellarine mental health and wellbeing activities.
A Talk for Wellbeing on Understanding and Supporting Mental Health will also be held on Mental Health Day (Saturday 10 October) at Portarlington Neighbourhood House from 2-3pm.
