THE multicultural community will get the chance to open up about mental health at an upcoming event during Mirrabooka Mental Health Week.

The main event will feature activities, nine information stalls, live music, Latin-American dance and Uthando doll making.

Department of Health Stirling catchment community development officer Ruth Langmead said she expected about 1000 people to attend.

“It is a good opportunity for people to start the conversations around mental health and for mental health to be associated with fun and community – that is probably the important thing,” she said.

“We hope that people from the event will feel more comfortable in having conversations and have greater awareness of the services they can have.”
