Mental Health Week 2017 is almost here!

Mental Health Week 2017 is almost here!

The Western Australian Association for Mental Health (WAAMH) are celebrating the 50th anniversary of Mental Health Week, which runs from the 7 – 14th October 2017! They’re hosting over 60 events across the Perth metro and regional area so there’s something for everyone!

This year’s focus will be on:

  1. Connecting with nature, community, and the self for your mental wellbeing

  2. Connecting with country, community, and the self for your social and emotional wellbeing

The week also coincides with World Mental Health Day on the 10th October, which focuses on encouraging action and awareness of mental health issues.

Events begin today with the Avivo Amazing Race in Geraldton, and the Opening Ceremony will kick off on Saturday in Kalgoorlie.

But if you can’t get out there, don’t fear: you can join in on the action with the NMACDS Photovoice Competition and Mentally Healthy Photo Competition held on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. Get your hashtags ready!
