October is Mental Health Month and Griffith City Council has joined forces with headspace Griffith, Child and Adolescent Community Mental Health (CAMS) and Totem to help raise awareness for youth mental health issues.
Totem will be at the Griffith Skate Park this Friday from 2pm to 5pm to bring young people of Griffith free workshops and a Skate Jam session.
Team members from headspace Griffith and Child and Adolescent Community Mental Health team (CAMs) will be providing information and resources and offering the chance to have an informal chat with a mental health professional.
Communities Committee chairman councillor Dino Zappacosta encouraged everyone to come down and help raise awareness of Youth Mental Health while learning new skills.
Totem will be kicking off the event with a free workshop for beginners at 2pm, an intermediate session at 3pm and ending at 4pm with an open skate jam.
