A joint partnership between Tradies In Sight, the Rural Adversity Mental Health Program and Lifeline Central West is encouraging conversations and connections within the community via the Dubbo Cares Day, raising awareness of mental health.
The day will be held on Wednesday, October 28, with a call out to turn the city yellow.
Macquarie and Talbragar Streets will be decorated in yellow, with a barbecue breakfast and lunch to be held at the Dubbo Rotunda between 8am and 2pm, thanks to the Royal Flying Doctor Service.
Businesses are being encouraged to get involved by decorating and dressing up in yellow with some great prizes for the best decorated business, home and car.
Residents are also being encouraged to reach out to someone, check in and genuinely connect with that person, to boost positive connections within the community.
It could be a close friend, colleague or just smiling and saying hi to a stranger in the street.
For more information visit the Dubbo cares Facebook page @DubboCares or Instagram @dubbo_cares, or to take part in the competition you can email a photo of your decorated space to firstname.lastname@example.org.
