Mental Health goes country for farmers in need

19 September 2018

Logan Hospital Addiction and Mental Health staff donned their very best country gear recently to give back to the rural community and tell them they care.

Moleskins, Akubras and check shirts were the order of the day as staff walked the wards collecting a fiver for a farmer from their colleagues across the facility.

The adolescent ward also got on board hosting a chicken and vegetable curry day to raise money, while other staff made sure dessert was taken care of with a variety of cakes for sale.

2C nurse Stacey Cleland won the prize for the best dressed farmer and was responsible for the fundraising drive after wearing her “flano” to work for her own fiver for a farmer day.

Thank you to all the nurses, doctors, allied health, peer support, inpatient administration team and the well being team for Addiction and Mental Health as well as the patients who supported the events and donated.
