Annual Red Hat Day
Each year, the combined Rotary Clubs of Geraldton come together to promote mental health for Annual Red Hat Day. Mental health services provide stalls and information for the public.
This included WA Country Health Service, WAPHAs Suicide Prevention team, headspace, Midwest Yellow Ribbon for Life and a Northampton community member who has commenced a lived experience support group.
As part of the Midwest Suicide Prevention Trial, WAPHA sponsored the keynote speaker Tony Allan, an ex-farmer from Mingenew who also featured in our Inside My Mind campaign. Tony spoke about his journey with depression and encouraged everyone, especially men, to talk to someone about their mental health.
