Nowra will mark National Mental Health Month and International Mental Health Day on October 10 - by staging the biggest ever local gathering of community members, people with lived experience of mental illness, relatives, carers, and support workers.
The free open-invitation BBQ event is called “Be YOUnique” – a reference to the importance of self-identity and self-esteem when on a mental health recovery journey.
Local services have joined forces to make the event possible, with the primary intention of raising awareness of mental health and social and emotional wellbeing in the community.
