The All of Us Festival – Celebrating Mental Health Week will be held on Saturday 9 October 2021 during Qld Mental Health Week. The prolonged isolation stresses brought about by COVID-19 restrictions have negatively affected our community’s mental health and cohesiveness. The Festival aims to raise awareness of the importance of mental health and bring our community together. Activities planned include an outdoor variety concert, children’s activities, food vans and stalls and a large Expo where mental health agencies can showcase the services they offer. We will need volunteers to help us have a successful festival.
Sponsorship is currently being sought for this important Festival.

Any funds raised by the festival will aid the Backyard Makeover Program. The Backyard Makeover Program is a volunteer project being implemented in the Cairns district to improve mental, social and physical outcomes for isolated residents requiring assistance with a small makeover of their backyard.
