Young people gathered at the Bendigo library gardens on Wednesday to learn how they can improve their mental health.
A number of local organisations - including Headspace, Bendigo Community Health and the Bendigo YMCA - provided fun activities and information as part of National Headspace Day.
"It's also mental health week so we've got together with all of the different services that are here to help," Headspace's community engagement worker Haylee Kennedy said.
The national day informs young Australians how they can build a healthier mind so their general wellbeing is improved.
There were a range of activities for the children to enjoy, including a gardening workshop.
"We've got some young kids who have come and planted some seeds," Ms Kennedy said.
"They've put their names on the plants and they can come back to Headspace and watch them grow as we care for them."
There was also information on healthy eating options and volunteer opportunities in Bendigo, as well as classes on yoga and meditation.
"It's about keeping the young people healthy and active," Ms Kennedy said. "We want to give them a sense of what are the other things they can do in life."
Ms Kennedy has encouraged young people who need support to check out headspace.org.au
