Mental health professional breakfast

Country and Outback Health hosted a breakfast to recognise mental health professionals in the Port Lincoln community to kick off Mental Health Week 2017. 

The theme for Mental Health Week is Mind Your Health, your mental health is just as important as your physical health.

Country and Outback Health chief executive officer Zieco Skeldon said the aim of the breakfast event was to acknowledge mental health professionals for all the work done throughout the year, and the key role they played in improving the mental health of the community.

“Mental Health Week is a great opportunity to reignite the conversation around mental health, actively working towards reducing the impact of stigma and increasing access to support for people in need,” he said.
