Stars Stress Less

The leadership skills of our Tennant Creek Stars were showcased yesterday, when they volunteered to assist with the NT Department of Health’s ‘Stress Less’ event, held at Tennant Creek High School.

‘Stress Less’ is all about challenging perceptions about mental illness and helping people understand what it means and how to get help if they need it.

Our Stars helped to ensure that all students and visitors had an opportunity to participate in the dedicated program of events, which focused on three key areas: Mindfulness, Looking After Yourself and Looking After Each Other.

Some of our Stars also assisted the special guest speakers – AFL NT legend and former player, Daniel Motlop, and current AFL Thunder player, Ebony Miller – in coordinating the audiences.

The guest speakers spoke to students, staff and visitors about how they have looked after their own mental health – and navigated the inevitable pitfalls – on their journey to success.

‘Stress Less’ was an important event for the Tennant Creek community and we are super proud of the way in which our Stars shone in their leadership roles on the day.
