About Mental Health Week
Mental Health Week is celebrated all around Australia, with each state and territory adopting its own theme and holding their own events each year.
The events of 2020 have brought the social determinants of mental health into sharp focus across all of our communities and it’s important to take this opportunity of community awareness to bring attention to the need to safeguard people’s social determinants of mental health during and after the COVID-19 crisis has passed. To build supportive communities, we must take a holistic look at mental health, sharing ideas, and learning from each other through every day activities.
In 2020, we will continue to aim to boost mental well being by:
Encouraging people to support and look out for one another
Promote mental health literacy and self-care tips
Raise awareness of mental health issues and reducing stigma associated with seeking support.
You can find out more about the mental health support services we provide; including support for people living with psycho-social disability, in South Australia, Western Australia, Tasmania and Queensland through the button below.
