Clarence Valley Independent

Sharing the journey


October is Mental Health Month and is a time to reflect on our own mental health and wellbeing and the importance of good social connections. 

With this in mind, Our Healthy Clarence organised a sausage sizzle and ‘Healthy Minds & Wellbeing’ street stall held at the CWA in River Street Maclean last Wednesday. The objective was to engage with the community and provide information on how the community can access services and information on mental health. We would like to thank the CWA Maclean branch for supporting us and providing the space for our stall holders, Home Hardware Maclean for providing the BBQ and marquee, Walters Butchers for donating the sausages and Spar Maclean for donating the bread, condiments and serviettes. Thank you to RAMHP and all the service providers for coming along and sharing their information on the various types of mental health services available in the Lower Clarence. Its times like this when you appreciate how generous our local businesses can be and for this we thank you for supporting us and sharing the journey.

Now you’re here …

… the Independent would like to ask for your support. The community is reading our paper more than ever and embracing the content we produce, but advertising revenues across the media as a whole, are falling. Unlike other news organizations we do not charge for our publication – so, to keep our community connected and deliver the local news to your door we would like to ask for your help..... to keep the Independent bringing you all the local community news takes a lot of time, hard work and people power, But we do it because we believe our presence matters – who else tells it how it is, where it is, and what it is.

If you like our journalism, if you like the community news, if you like our sports coverage we would love it if you could help fund it, our future may depend on it. For as little as $5, you can support the Independent – Thank you.
