A local group known as the ProgrESK Association Inc. has jumped on board with the Blue trees for mental health initiative.  The group worked with a local landowner to paint a dead tree blue to bring awareness to suicide prevention.  The blue trees are a symbol of strength and hope; even seemingly dead trees stand strong, with their branches reaching out to those around them, and can provide hope.  The local response to this project has been very well received and has provided us with guided reflection and instigated the question R U OK?

An article appearing In the August edition of the Local Government Focus explains how another Western Australian Council is supporting this cause which began in Western Australia in 2014 by a local farmer Jayden Whyte.
