5 Ways to Wellbeing Session Keep Learning - Embrace new experiences

Posted on: 24.07.2017

A free screening of the documentary “Embrace” will take place next Wednesday 26 July at Picton High School. It is part of a series of sessions from Council’s 5 Ways to Wellbeing program aimed at increasing awareness about wellbeing in the community, and to give young people the skills to help them identify issues and seek support.

Judith Hannan, Mayor for Wollondilly is a strong supporter of the 5 Ways to Wellbeing program saying, “The showing of the documentary “Embrace” is key to starting a much-needed conversation about what we can do to embrace body diversity, so that we can encourage our young people to embrace their bodies and to prioritise true health and positive wellbeing.”

Team members from Brand New Day Female Support Inc., Therese Easter and Belinda Messer, will be attending to facilitate the conversation and provide information on body image, embracing body diversity and leading a healthy life.

Date:               Wednesday 26 July

Time:               6.30 - 8.30pm

Venue:            Picton High School, 480 Argyle St, Picton

Light supper will be provided and lucky door prizes.

Please note - The documentary “Embrace” is targeted at Young Women and is classified M. It is recommended for teenagers 15 years and over as it contains full frontal nudity which may cause some offence.
