Look after your
For the month of October, we’re celebrating World Mental Health Day on October 10 by bringing Australians together to look after their mental health. Register below to join our October Mental Health Month. You’ll receive extra tips to practice good mental health.
Our mental health and wellbeing are uniquely ours.
There are so many different tools and practices that we could introduce into our daily routines. What feels great for one person might not feel great for another. That’s why we want to encourage Australians to try a variety of wellbeing activities to find what works for them.
What to expect
Awareness of mental health and wellbeing.
Belonging to a community.
Connection to yourself.
How you can join us
Register for our October Mental Health Month.
Share the campaign with family, friends and colleagues.
Receive emails each week with tips, keeping you motivated and on track for the week ahead.
On 10 October, think about a colour you find most calming. Find or take a photo of anything that includes that colour and post it on social media. Eg. if your colour is blue, it could be the beach, or sky, or a blue t-shirt. Tag #MentalHealthMosaic
Digital Mental Health Mosaic
On 13 October we’ll share the digital mosaic with you here.
What does ‘good’ mental health look like?
Good mental health is when we can cope with the stressors of our daily lives, participate in loving relationships, contribute to our community, and work towards our goals. Everyone has mental health. And we can all benefit from looking after our own mental health and the mental health of our communities.
