Blue Tree Project

The City of Bayswater has contributed to a national initiative raising mental health awareness by painting three deceased trees a special shade of blue in support of the Blue Tree Project.

A Marri Tree at Robert Thompson Reserve, Tuart Tree at Claughton Reserve and River Red Gum at Maylands Foreshore have all been painted blue as part of the initiative.

The Blue Tree Project's mission is to help spark difficult conversations and encourage people to speak up when battling mental health concerns.

By spreading the paint and spreading the message that "it's OK to not be OK", we can help break down the stigma that's still largely attached to mental health.

Since the painting of the first tree, the Project has seen worldwide support and there are currently more than 600 trees painted blue across Australia, New Zealand, Germany, the United Kingdom and the United States of America.
