Words by Ashleigh Howarth

A free community expo will be held on the peninsula this Friday in celebration of Mental Health Week.

The Moreton Bay Mental Health Expo will be broken up into two sessions, with the morning session being held from 10am-2pm, and the afternoon session running from 4-8pm.

The first session will include plenty of interactive stalls where the community can engage with a wide range of community services, as well as participate in some fun activities such as yoga, games, Indigenous painting workshops, drumming and more.

From 4pm, a number of food trucks will park up and there will be live music for the community to enjoy until 8pm.


The Moreton Bay Mental Health Expo will be held on Friday, October 22 from 10am-2pm, and then again from 4-8pm.

It will be held at the Redcliffe Youth Space, located at 440 Oxley Avenue, Redcliffe.

Council to also host an array of activities

If you are unable to make the expo on Friday, there will be a number of other events being held across the region.

Moreton Bay Regional Council will be providing a range of healthy and creative opportunities for people to nourish their mental and physical wellbeing.

A full list of events this week can be found on Council's website
