MUSIC, a barbecue and the chance for a chat helped the Orange branch underscore the theme of headspace Day on Monday.

Aimed at  challenging young people to determine what gets them in a better headspace, the event at Orange’s TAFE campus was centred on helping “young people understand what makes them happy and clears their mind of stress,” said headspace Orange’s manager Alison Logan.

With one in four young people in Australia experiencing a mental health concern, Mrs Logan the organisation’s focus on early intervention was vital.

“The campaign is a way to illustrate that we all feel low sometimes but more importantly it gets people talking,” she said.

Monday’s session included music by Orange’s Phoebe Parsons and Sebastian Jones.
