October is Mental Health Awareness Month; the national program aims to improve community awareness of mental health and interest in mental wellbeing. This year’s theme is ‘We all have a role to play'. To acknowledge Mental Health Month, Centennial Park will be lighting the Park Blue. Blue is the colour of the mind, calming, reflecting inner peace, serenity, and healing. Awash of blue will light the perimeter of the Park from dusk into the evening. Light the Park Blue recognises those affected by a range of mental illness, their family and friends, the greater community, and anyone who has lost a loved one to suicide, some who are memorialised within our Park and gardens. Centennial Park hopes to encourage open conversations about emotional and mental wellbeing within the community.
