2019 Mental Health Week Theme
The theme for Mental Health Week in 2019 is: Mental Health: We all have a role to play.
What is that role exactly?
Mental Health Week is part of a national mental health promotion campaign held in October each year, and incorporates World Mental Health Day, held globally on 10 October. The purpose of this awareness week is to engage communities in activities that promote mental health and wellbeing and also raise awareness and understanding about mental illness, and how it impacts on the lives of people in our community.
Mental Health Week in Tasmania and the MHW Small Grants program is proudly supported by the Tasmanian Department of Health.
