2018 Launch Event

In 2018 we officially launched Mental Health Month in the ACT in Garema Place on Friday 5th of October under the city lights in a fun, laid-back carnival atmosphere! 

MHCC ACT Executive Officer Simon Viereck welcomed the ACT Minister for Mental Health Shane Rattenbury MLA to officially launch Mental Health Month in the ACT. 

Minister Rattenbury spoke about the theme for Mental Health Month in 2018 ‘Identity & Growth’ saying, “I think it is a really powerful message and a really great theme for us to reflect on right through this month of events.” 

This family friendly event highlighted some of the incredible talent we have here in Canberra with live performances from the Warehouse Circus, S.A.D Australia and music from Local upbeat cover duo El Rose.  

Gecko Gang provided free face painting for the kids along with popcorn and fairy floss. Thanks to Madeleine Tranter Creative for entertaining us with fairy magic and bubbles.  A free sausage sizzle was generously provided for the community by the local Lions Club

Big thank you to all who braved the cold and came along to officially launch Mental Health Month in the ACT!
