Entry to the exhibition and members of the community are invited to see the display and vote in the People’s Choice Award for their favourite image.
City of Rockingham Mayor, Barry Sammels said initiatives like this encourage people to think in a creative way about mental health: “This year 102 outstanding finalists were selected from 430 entries.
“There are national campaigns and awareness days throughout the year to keep mental health issues on the agenda and to keep people thinking about and paying attention to their own and others’ mental health.
“The Rockingham PhotoVoice competition provides a community level competition which asks people to demonstrate through words and images how they like to look after their mental health.
“While it is beautiful and engaging, the exhibition presents a genuine opportunity for visitors to see the wide range of different ways others care for their mental health.
“This sharing of images and ideas provides inspiration to others, perhaps to try different things and think about other things they can do to care for their mental health.
“I look forward to the challenge of judging the winners and I hope everyone has the chance to see this year’s exhibition at the Gary Holland Community Centre.
