The aim of Mental Health Week 2001 (October 7th - 13th) was to work together to promote positive mental health, prevent illness and remove the stigma associated with mental illness. Our objective is to inform the community about Mental Health and promote "positive thinking" in young people

Moonee Valley Youth Services held 2 Mental Health Information Days. Both days were a huge success and i would like to thank all those who came along!
