October is Mental Health Month

Whether it's taking time to care for yourself, caring for someone close to you, supporting your community to be more mental health aware, or being a mental health ally - we all have a role to play.

Mental Health Month is celebrated each year October in NSW. This month encourages all of us to think about our mental health and wellbeing, regardless of whether we may have a lived experience of mental illness or not. It also gives us the opportunity to understand the importance of good mental health in our everyday lives and encourages help seeking behaviours when needed. 

In 2023, the theme for Mental Health Month is We all Have a Role to Play

This Mental Health Month, think about ways you connect with the people around you. Together, we can work towards a world free from mental health stigma.  What role will you play?

Whether it is supporting a colleague, running a community event or educating yourself about the importance of mental health language, everyone can play a role.

Together we can create a safe place for those living with, supporting others and receiving mental health support.
