MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS MONTH OCTOBER
1300 643 287 (1300 MHF AUS)
National Mental Health Month is an initiative of the Mental Health Foundation Australia (MHFA) to advocate for and raise awareness of Australian mental health. It is an important time where the Australian community comes together to raise awareness and promote better mental health for all. Throughout this month, many events have been organised in each state of Australia aiming to attract and unite Australians of all ages and backgrounds to raise awareness and promote better mental health for all.
The National Mental Health Month 2021 Awareness Campaign theme is:
‘Mental Health: Post Pandemic Recovery Challenges and Resilience'
This year’s theme will focus on raising awareness about mental health in various industries. Every industry has faced and many are still facing unprecedented challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
With this theme in mind, we aim to extend our campaign even wider than previous years, with events planned to embrace many different community groups and people of all ages walking on the road to recovery and fostering resilience #ResilienceAndRecovery.
