Samaritans ARAFMI Mental Health Wellness Walk

With one in three people experiencing mental illness during their lives, it’s important for the community to unite to share the journey of support.

The Mental Health Wellness Walk aims to unite the Newcastle community by raising awareness of, and destigmatizing, mental health, and encouraging everyone, whether they have experienced mental illness or not, to recognise the importance of looking after our mental health and wellbeing.

Watch our 2019 walk in the video below!

Twilight Fair

The Twilight Fair kicks off the festive season with a Christmas market, selling beautiful artworks from people we support at Samaritans.
