Walk and Talk is a peer support walking group for young people in Maroondah aged 15-25 years old. This group is a supportive and welcoming space for all young people with lived experience of mental health related challenges or looking to make connections within the community. The group provides a safe space, open for all kinds of conversation while being supported by a Youth Worker, a Mental Health Worker (Counsellor/Provisional Psychologist) and their therapy dog! Come down and have casual conversations with other young people while walking and immersing yourself in nature.

The group is run fortnightly on Wednesdays from 4:30-5:30pm. Walk and Talk meets outside of EV’s Youth Centre and walks along the Tarralla Creek Trail.
