I was impressed with the quality of work at tonight’s launch of State Of Mind - The Sunny Side of Mental Health exhibition at Burrinja as part of the Shire’s activities for Mental Health Week.

The photography exhibition is the work of members of the Shire’s Paying Attention To Self (PATS) and Traction programs.

The main aim of the exhibition is to show positive images created by young people whose lives have been affected by mental health issues in some way. The work was impressive and rich in the diversity of subject matter covered and techniques used and I’m sure we will see more artistic endeavours from these budding artists in the future.

Participating Artists received certificates
in recognition of their involvement.

Me at tonight's launch, the exhibition runs till October 12th, I encourage you to get along and have a look for yourself.

The PATS and Traction programs are run by the Shire for young people who are coping with a range of mental health issues.
