HALT! and say “HI!”

August 30, 2017

Lifeline Gippsland staff and volunteers will be out and about over the next few weeks and months, on a ‘HALT! and say HI!’ mission to increase the awareness of mental health issues in the general Latrobe Valley community.

Through the generosity of local traders, opportunities will be provided for the public to engage in helpful activities or to simply sit down over a free coffee and cake and talk with highly trained individuals who are willing and able to engage in constructive and supportive conversation about mental health and its prevalence and effect in the local community.

An integral component of this initiative is ‘HALT’ – Hope Assistance for Local Tradies which aims to remind tradies they are valued by their community, and directs them to support services, both local and national, should they need them. HALT works in conjunction with concerned community members.

Social connection is good for our mental health. Stay tuned through Lifeline Gippsland and get yourself involved!
