Bay of Isles Community Outreach held an open day for their Harmonee House last week, which saw more than 100 people come through too learn about the project.

The house, run by Robert Smith, provides a safe space for people battling with mental illness to develop friendships and learn new skills.

Visitors were able to get a closer look at the house as well as the programs on offer, including gardening and arts and crafts.

BOICO carer consultant Stacey Searle, who runs Harmonee House with Mr Smith, said it was an overwhelming response from the community.

“It was a fantastic turnout, we weren’t expecting such a big crowd. It was good to see that people were interested in our place,” she said.

Wood fired pizzas were on the menu thanks to the house’s new oven donated by Bunnings.
