    18 October, 2017, By web team IN Market for your Mind

    Our biggest Market for your Mind yet kicked off on Monday the 16th of October! Check out our wrap up below...

    This year, 200+ people attended our Market for your Mind event - with a bunch of stalls and free food, it was an event not to be missed!

    With mental health month and upcoming HSC exams in mind, the event had a wide range of stalls to target stress reduction, and health and well-being...

    Headspace

    Delta Therapy Dogs

    Slack-lining

    Petals of Peace

    DAYS (Drug & Alcohol Youth Service)

    Mosman Youth

    FRESH Snacks

    Well Balanced Health Care

    Lost Bird Found

    Henna

    Collaborative Art

    Acoustic Corner

    Drumming

    Yoga

    With the event held on the eve of the first HSC exam for 2017, current year 12 students described the event as a "fabulous way for young people to wind down after exams".

    Youth Services provided young people with "Stress-Less Packs" which were filled with resources to help with self-care. Resources were donated by local mental health and youth services.

     

    Some of the quotes we got from young people on the day:

    "It's a really great way to de-stress after an intense few weeks of studying" (Anais, Year 12)

    "I loved the free stress-less packs and therapy dogs. So cool!" (Gideon, Year 10)

    20 October, 2016, By web team IN Beat the Blues

    Every year, Mosman Youth runs a 'Market for your Mind' - an event targeted at young people to raise awareness for Mental Health.

    The market features stalls from various special guests each year, with a focus on reducing and managing stress and promoting mental wellbeing.

    In 2016, we had some fantastic stalls from:

    Mosman Library

    Headspace Chatswood

    Mosman Village Yoga

    ...and a wide range of activities for everyone to enjoy! Our fave was the live art piece (pictured below!) that was completed on the day by young people who attended - it proudly currently hangs inside the youth centre!

    Check out some photos below from the big day!

    and a massive thanks to our sponsors, Burger Shed & Chargrilled Charlies!
