headspace national day opens dialogue for coping | Gallery, Video

It was a simple question for headspace during the Monday morning tea: what do you do when you’re feeling down?

In recognition of headspace’s national day, the local office invited service providers and community members to come together and speak about strategies for coping. 

Service manager Leonie Everett said the green placards, which were filled in throughout the morning, was a way to open the important dialogue. 

“Good nutrition, good sleep, exercise, removing all the stuff that doesn’t seem important - sometimes you need a reminder and that’s what today is about,” she said.

Attendees included MP Pru Goward, Goulburn High School principal Paul Hogan and Goulburn Mulwaree Councillor Carol James. 

“Goulburn and regional communities can be very welcoming, rich communities but if you’re alone, you’re really alone,” Ms Goward said. 

“It’s so important able to offer support for our kids so they know where to go and who to talk to.”
