Mental Health First Aid training - August 2021

Kingston Council is organising the third and last round of mental health first aid training. The training is aimed at faith and community leaders from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, and will be held on 18 and 25 August.

The training is designed to educate community leaders on mental health, and to assist them to understand barriers to help-seeking, including cultural or language barriers. The program is delivered in a culturally sensitive way and is completely free. This project is supported by the Victorian Government through the Priority Response to Multicultural Communities during Coronavirus (PRMC) program.

Penpal project aims to build community connections and reduce loneliness

If you're feeling lonely or isolated and would like to receive a letter from a community member, or want to put a smile on someone's face then join the Letterbox Project.

Residents, workers and visitors to Kingston are being encouraged to log their perceptions of safety in public places on a new interactive map to help make more inclusive spaces for everyone to enjoy leisure, sport and play. Launched on 27 May 2021, YourGround maps local streets, parks, trails and recreational spaces, sharing the often hidden experiences of safety for women and gender-diverse people. The YourGround interactive map will be live for three months.
