The Green Health Zone is a Youth Mental Health Activity Stall which will be held in conjunction with the NSW Skate Park League Competition at Clarendon Skate Park on October 7. This event will consist of a Gazebo style ‘hang-out zone’ that will incorporate mental health activities, small workshops, information and giveaways from the Hawkesbury Council and headspace (Penrith – Castle Hill).
To connect with the theme – Learn & Grow – the giveaways will include plants (ornamental natives and vegetables) to create an analogy between plant-care and self-care IE – the idea of spending a little time and effort to take care of your plants can be related to taking care of your mental health. There will be space to sit and review information, take part in mental health based games and activities and receive prizes for participation. The focus of the event will be on relaxation and mental wellness.
