Ulverstone will be one of 26 sites around Australia shining a light on mental health issues by hosting the Coast’s first Lift the Lid community walk on Sunday.

The walk will start from the Rowing Club at 9am, covering 5km or less, with participants encouraged to only do as much as they’re comfortable with.

The walk is aiming to help break down the barriers and stigma associated with mental health and help raise funds for Rotary Health Australia’s mental health research.

Former Rotary Health Australia chair Kevin Shadbolt says the walks are important as mental health issues can affect anyone of any age.

Registrations can be made on-line at as well as from 8am at the start of the walk on Sunday.
