Bea in for a cuppa

JUST a yarn over a cup of tea with a friend can make all the difference to your day and help you keep going, says carer Bea Ballangarry.

Aunty Bea was the guest speaker at the closing ceremony for Mental Health Month, which was part of the Walk the Talk event at Brelsford Park.

The event also celebrated the achievements of the Coffs Happy Walkers, a Heart Foundation group who have been walking for nearly a year.

The participants, from a number of mental health services, walk up to 60 minutes a week.

Walk the Talk brought together clients of mental health services with carers, mental health workers and Coffs Harbour High School Year 10 students.
