Hospital staff raise money for mental health support
Staff at a local hospital have raised $1000 for a regional mental health support group.
Brisbane Waters Private Hospital has donated the money to Central Coast ARAFMI.
Hospital chief executive Ms Kathy Beverley said the cheque was "part of the hospital's ongoing support for this wonderful not for profit organisation".
Central Coast ARAFMI was a grassroots organisation that was established by mental health carers more than 40 years ago, she said.
She said Central Coast ARAFMI provided whole of family support and worked with people who lived with a mental illness, as well as the family and friends of people who live with a mental illness.
"This money was raised by hospital staff through various fundraising events that we held throughout 2018," Ms Beverley said.
