Be Kind Maroondah

Be kind Maroondah

Did you know that one act of kindness each day can reduce stress, anxiety and depression? Recent statistics show that social isolation is having a negative impact on mental health with requests for mental health assistance in Australia increasing by as much as 40%.  

During these difficult times, it is important that we are kind to ourselves, to others and to our local businesses. We are all finding things to be hard going at the moment, but we can get through it by supporting each other. Maroondah City Council is joining the City of Ballarat in their Be Kind campaign.
