Lost bird project to aid mental health
A Lost Bird Found workshop was held at the Peninsula Community Centre in Woy Woy on August 27.
The workshop created birds in all shapes, sizes, colours and materials, to be tagged with mental health information cards and scattered across the Peninsula for community members to find throughout October, Mental Health Awareness Month.
The Lost Bird Found project partnered with Central Coast Council to run the workshop where community members were able to drop in and create their own "lost bird".
Mayor Cr Jane Smith said: "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."
