IT takes a village to raise a child.
That proverb forms the basis of an upcoming free community forum in Ballarat that will focus on youth mental health and community wellbeing.
Jointly hosted by headspace Ballarat Leadership Ballarat and Western Region, the community forum will include an expert panel and guest speakers.
Those who would like to attend are encouraged to ask their wellbeing and mental health questions beforehand, which will then be answered on the night.
Leadership Ballarat and Western Region executive officer Sofia Fiusco said the mental health forum was aimed at bringing the community together to support the wellbeing of young people.
“Especially in winter, we are a bit known for getting our winter sads in Ballarat when the weather changes,” she said.
“We can’t warm up and life gets a bit tougher.”
The free mental health community forum will take place at the Wendouree Centre for Performing Arts on Tuesday, March 25 at 7pm.
