Mental Health Month NSW

Mental Health Month NSW is part of a national mental health promotion campaign held throughout October each year. The timing of the campaign centres on World Mental Health Day, which happens each year on October 10.

The main message of this campaign is to encourage all individuals to think about how mental health exists in their daily life & promote the need for all individuals to make mental health a priority in their daily lives. When we make our mental health a priority, we are practicing self- care which is an important part of our daily living to ensure the maintenance of a balanced wellbeing.

The 2015 Mental Health Month Starter kit is now available to download or read online. It contains useful information about how to organise an event to raise awareness of mental health, wellbeing and value the minds that shape your community. Please scroll down below.
