Look for a blue tree near you

28 September 2020
The City of Canning is proud to be supporting the Blue Tree Project to raise awareness of mental health and remind people that there is always someone you can talk to who will listen. 

There are two dead trees being painted blue in Canning early October in recognition of Mental Health Awareness Week:
o one at Massey Park, Rossmoyne by the Lions Club of Canning City
o one at Whaleback Golf Course by Whaleback staff.

The Massey Park tree will be painted by the Lions Club of Canning City on Saturday 10 October from 10am and the community are welcome to come and help. The Massey Park tree will be in place for 12 months.

The tree at Whaleback Golf Course will be painted by the team at Whaleback in the week leading up to Mental Health Awareness Week. It will be near the fifth green.

City staff will be wrapping a number of trees in blue fabric and the Town Hall will be lit blue during Mental Health Awareness Week.

This joint project between the Lions Club of Canning City, Whaleback Golf Course, Beaver Tree Solutions and the City of Canning aims to encourage people to talk about mental health.

Blue Tree Project started in WA to raise awareness of mental wellbeing and now you can find blue trees across Australia and also overseas.

Look out for a blue tree near you.
