Today is R U OK? Day

Today is a reminder that we need to start talking about mental health. Not just today, we need to think about mental health awareness all year round. If someone you know isn't behaving like they normally behave, please take the time to ask them how they feel.

To find out more about how to check in with people please visit https://www.ruok.org.au/how-to-ask

Many thanks to HOPE's staff in Armadale for their support of R U OK? Day.

Thanks for a great day out!

We’d like to thank Sergeant Guy Warnock and his team for making some time for HOPE and some of its young people yesterday.

We had a great time visiting the Yandeyarra Community where the Pilbara Regiment are based for one week undergoing some training. Eve and Tara from HOPE took three young people to the camp where they learned all about the training and all about Army life. The young people were impressed and have since expressed an interest in joining the Army Cadets, which is great.

The soldiers were extremely happy to talk to us about their Army buggies, guns, food rations, mapping, training, camps and showed us their tents and more. Whilst we were there, they asked us if we were staying the night, however they forgot to mention this to us prior so we could arrange it.

However, they will be running the same training exercise next year and have invited us back to camp with them, so we’ll stay overnight then.

The trip took just over one and a half hours and a packed lunch and snack were provided for the drive.

A great day was had by all!

Congratulations to Leeanne for her great work!

On Sunday 12th August, approximately 20 parents and some young people attended an information session at AQWA. The purpose of the School Leavers Information morning was to prepare and inform Year 12 parents about the resources and services that will be available to care for their young people at Leavers this year in the South West and Rottnest Island.

Hope Community Services, Red Frogs, WAPOL and SEDERA spoke about what these services do to assist the young people in both destinations.

Every parent that asked a question thanked the services for what they do to keep their young people safe.

The feedback from the parents was fantastic as you can see.

Congratulations to Leeanne and her team!

Many thanks to all the people who attended our White Balloon Day event at our Hedland bail house on Friday. The team put on a great spread and provided great hospitality for the many people that attended.

Our guests included local elders, Tabarina and Nana Shirley, the acting Youth Justice Manager Lyell and his colleague, Wayne and Larissa, Tanya from Bloodwood tree, Pep and Enitha who are local Youth Involvement Councillors as well as Mick Geaney, HOPE’s CEO.

The team also organised a “Jelly bean jar count”, which raised $65 dollars for the White balloon Day Foundation.

After the above guests had left the house, the Mayor of Hedland came for a visit and spent almost an hour talking with the team about our services and youth at risk in Hedland. Also the CEO for Regional Development Australia – Pilbara Division, Diane Pentz, came in to say hello.

In all, it was an extremely entertaining and fulfilling day.
I’d like to recognise the effort the Hedland team put into the day and also acknowledge them for the incredible relationships they have built and continue to strengthen in the area. The respect and admiration the local services and community elders have for our service in Hedland is clear to see - many thanks to you all!
