Broome Youth and Families Hub invited the Broome community to the Drop In Centre to participate in our mental health week event 'Blue Gives Us Hope'.
In recognition of Blue Tree Project we painted walls, ornaments, dead trees, and seats BLUE.
The mission was to help spark difficult conversations and encourage people to speak up when battling mental health concerns. By spreading the paint and spreading the message that "it’s OK to not be OK", we can help break down the stigma that’s still largely attached to mental health. Huge thanks to the WA Police for throwing on a free BBQ and assisting with lifts home.
Also thanks to Helping Minds, Yawuru, Nirrumbuk, Headspace, and Alive & Kicking Goals for supporting the event.
The Young Warriors would like to thank Diverse Broome on behalf of BYFH. Thanks to your generous donations and fair prices this program has been able to not just keep running, but thrive. Everything that you've done for Young Warriors hasn't gone unnoticed, we appreciate it very much
