It was such a privilege to be invited to participate in the Graylands Hospital Women’s Health Week Festival event on 7 September 2017.
Giving a way wallet sized images with positive messages on the back, Hayley and Toni engaged patients and staff alike. Sharing over 150 cards with visitors to the festival, it was a load of fun.
Women’s health has so many facets and mental health is one of those. With 1 in 4 likely to experience a mental health challenge during their lifetime, this is definitely a high need area in our community.
It was wonderful to feel the energy in the room. One of the Health Dept employees commented…”I was feeling a bit low in energy when I arrived but now I’m feeling very inspired and uplifted.”
With the theme of the secret garden, many of the women created woven floral garlands and you couldn’t help but smile.
We have been invited back next year. As it was such a positive experience, we are hoping to take a few more women with us next time. Why keep all the fun to ourselves?
Here are some pics of the wonderful time we had at Women’s Health Week…
