ARAFMI Hunter Samaritans Mental Health Wellness Walk
will be held on Saturday 19 October 2019.
The Wellness Walk is held in Newcastle each year and normally attracts around 400 people. It was first held in 2005 to provide an opportunity for local people who care for others experiencing mental health issues to unite and support each other. The walk was the initiative of the then Regional Manager, Joanne Sinclair.
The Walk has been supported and continued by a group of dedicated ARAFMI Hunter volunteers. Due to a lack of resources, the Walk was not held in 2018.
In 2019, ARAFMI Hunter joined with Samaritans, and this year with Samaritans we are planning a new look Walk. More details will be announced soon.
