Mind Your Art competition for Mental Health Week

IT’S time to get creative and all in the name of positive mental health.

Headpace Port Macquarie is hosting the Mind Your Art art competition and exhibition where all entrants will have their artwork displayed at the Glasshouse from October 5-31.

The theme for 2017’s Mental Health month is ‘Share the Journey’. It focuses on the importance of social connections, the journey to better mental health and an ability to cope with life’s challenges.

Positive social connections not only improve mental health and well-being but they and also build resilience.

Mind Your Art judges are the very talented Simon Luxton, Adam Murray and Mel Casey who will favour works exploring this year’s theme. a
