Mental Health Week

Mental Health Week: 4 - 11 October


What is Mental Health Week all about?

Mental Health Week is part of a national mental health promotion campaign held in October each year.

It aims to engage communities in activities that promote mental wellbeing and also raise awareness and understanding about mental health issues and how they affect the lives of people in our community.

Mental Health Week 2015 in Tasmania takes place from  Sunday 4 October - Sunday 11 October 2015.

Mental Health Week Theme

The theme for Mental Health Week this year is 'Mental Health Begins with Me' and encourages us all to find ways to maintain our own mental health.

We are encouraging everyone to post their personal mental health promise via click the image below!
