2018 Stallholders

The 2017 Expo attracted over 1, 650 patrons with over 70 stallholders gathered to exhibit programs, services and initiatives designed to improve the mental health and wellbeing of Canberrans. 

Thanks to all the stallholders, patrons, musicians, and volunteer helpers who attended and helped make the 2017 Expo the biggest and most memorable one yet!

A special thanks to Nils and Hercules the alpaca, who brought smiles to the faces of all who crossed their path. Thanks also to the boys from Tuggeranong Men's Shed for putting on a ripper sausage sizzle! And finally, thank you to Garry and the Faumui's for donating the PA and looking after the music and entertainment for the day. Your input was a most welcome addition to our Expo!
