Border and North East residents are being asked to share what they do to safeguard their mental health ahead of headspace day on October 9.
People are being invited to join the national campaign to support the one in four young Australians who experience a mental health issue.
To get involved download a headspace day placard and share your personal mental health tip in a photo that can be posted on social media using #headspaceday.
Albury-Wodonga headspace will also help celebrate the day with an event at Junction Square, Wodonga from 11am to 4pm.
Meanwhile the youth mental health service and Gateway Health will host a parent and community information session on body confidence in children and teens this month.
The session on Wednesday October 25 will be presented by the Butterfly Foundation, which supports people affected by eating disorders and negative body image.
The topics will include an overview of eating and body related issues, including warning signs and the importance of prevention.
There will be the opportunity to learn about how to role model positive body image and healthy behaviours in addition to referral and support information.
In July, 2017 headspace chief executive Jason Trethowan voiced concerns a new Netflix movie about anorexia (To The Bone) could trigger at-risk young people.
Albury-Wodonga headspace manager Karina Kerr said at the time that eating disorders were an emerging area of concern on the Border.
“It’s an issue that has been brought to our attention by schools and young people,” Ms Kerr said.
As part of its response, Albury-Wodonga headspace has secured a team from The Butterfly Foundation to deliver a series of programs in October.
There will be sessions for young people and parents as well as professional development for teachers and affiliated health staff.
