WA Rocks dedicates October to mental health awareness

Lamp Inc Busselton has teamed up with WA Rocks to promote youth mental health.

Lamp youth program coordinator Paula Farley said there was a gap in primary education on mental health.

“That’s where the unicorn project came from, it is aimed at younger children, to help them identify their emotions, promote conversations around mental health and empowering them. 

“The unicorn project has moved from strength to strength. So we decided to do something special by teaming up with WA Rocks.”

In honour of the project, WA Rocks have made October their official unicorn month, to help promote youth mental health.

There will be several unicorn project themed rocks hidden throughout Busselton this October, those who find them are encouraged to bring them into Lamp’s op shop on 7 Albert Street to exchange for a special wrist band. 

Next Tuesday, October 10 is world mental health day. To help further raise awareness of youth mental health, the unicorn project will have a stall set up in Mitchell park from 12pm-2pm.

There will be a raffle, rock painting, the opportunity to take a photo with Yu the unicorn and much more.

All proceeds from the day will go towards Room 226 Lamp inc youth program.
