Youth Wellness Day

Our Tiaal Mi Goa group, a mental health collaboration between young people from CMY and Headspace, recently held a successful first event. Focusing on creating a culturally safe space for young people to get together, socialise, and talk about wellbeing – the Youth Wellness Day was created and held at Barkly Square, Ballarat.

The day included beauty facial masks organised by a talented young person who works as a beauty therapist, water colour painting classes, terrarium making, a relaxing hypnotherapy session, lunch, games, music, chats, healthy snacks and a facilitated wellbeing discussion.  

Around 40 young people from Ballarat, Horsham and Nhill attended the day during September school holidays, with those from the Wimmera traveling up and back in a day via bus.
