Walk of Pride


Mental Health Month 2010


A reminder that as part of Mental Health Week, Newcastle, has the annual ‘Walk of Pride’ this Sunday 10th of October, which is also ‘World Mental Health Day’.

I realise that it is tomorrow so if you see a wonderful group of people walking from Pacific Park through Newcastle’s Hunter Street Mall to Civic Park you may take a moment to give a clap or a gesture of thanks in any form to those who are out showing their support for people suffering from mental illness, and those families and friends promoting Mental Health and Well Being.

The ‘Walk of Pride’ this year has the theme of “Good Friends Help us Bounce Back”

The walk will start at 10am at Pacific Park and with conclude at Civic Park. There will then be a community BBQ, entertainment and speakers.

All are welcome, because we must remember that You Are Not Alone.
