YMCA Bendigo want you to take time for yourself and will be at Bendigo Marketplace promoting the #iamwhole campaign.

The #iamwhole campaign has two important purposes..

  1. Tackle Stigma: by seeking to normalise conversations around looking after our mental health just like we do our physical health.
  2. Whole Hour: on world mental health day to engage in activities that support good mental health.

#iamwhole symbolises the need to talk about mental health, educate young people and take action to look after or whole person!

Take a whole hour to: 

Connect: With the people around you. Face to face.
Be Active: Go for a walk, play a game, dance!
Take notice: Savour the moment. Try meditation.
Keep learning: Try something new. Pursue a hobby!
Give: Do something nice for someone. Volunteer.
