'Lost Bird Found' Handcrafted Bird Workshops
Once finished, the handcrafted birds will be tagged with a mental health information card and placed around the Coast for the community to 'find' during Mental Health Awareness Month in October.
Mayor Jane Smith said that these initiatives are important to help raise awareness and improve the mental health and wellness of the community.
"The project originated in North Sydney and has proved successful there in helping to start conversations and reduce the stigma around mental health issues, while highlighting the local services available," Mayor Smith said.
"We are looking forward to a similar success story here.
"This project is a great example of Councils working with communities to help solve social and health issues that impact wellbeing and community connections.
The community are invited to come along to the free workshops which are designed for people of all crafting abilities. All materials will be provided.
