Invitations are out to all locals across the region to the ‘Connection with a Cuppa’ event during Queensland’s Mental Health Week.

Hosted by the Dimbulah Community Centre, the event will be held this Friday, 13 October at the Dimbulah Memorial Hall in the supper room from 10am-12pm.

“All it takes is a cuppa or a moment of time to start that conversation, to check in and really listen,” Grace Armenti, manager of Dimbulah Community Centre (DCC) said.

It is hoped attendance would be high for such an important activity during Queensland’s Mental Health Week (7-15 October). 

“Existing and new community members are encouraged to attend, to make a connection with others and take the opportunity to build a sense of belonging to our community,” Grace said. 

Dimbulah Community Centre applied for (and received) a grant through the Queensland Mental Health Commission earlier in the year to make the activity possible.

The event will kick off with guest speaker, Dr Grant Manypeney, from The Black Cockatoo Foundation to start the conversation, reduce stigma around mental health and bring awareness to relevant services and organisations in the area.

All are welcome to attend the morning tea, from 10am on 13 October at Dimbulah Memorial Hall. 

RSVP by 11 October 2023 by phoning DCC on 4093 5444.
