the positive things in life


with others, reach out


try something new

Mental Health Week is a national event, held every October to coincide with World Mental Health Day (10 October).  It's an opportunity to promote awareness about mental health and wellbeing.

Mental Health Week is a wonderful example of what can be done through strong partnerships as we successfully engage with our sector, the broader community, and encourage government and corporate organisations to participate in the promotion of positive mental health messages.

The aim of Mental Health Week is to promote social and emotional wellbeing to the community, encourage people to maximise their health potential, enhance the coping capacity of communities, families, individuals and increase mental health recovery.

In 2014, Mental Health Week will run from Oct 4- 10.
