Queensland Mental Health Week will commence tomorrow Saturday 9 October 2021, and hundreds of events, activities and conversations will take place in celebration during the following week.

The theme for 2021 is, ‘Take time – for mental health’, so Queenslanders are being encouraged to focus on the things that can sustain and maintain their wellbeing.

We know the pandemic has resulted in increased pressures across the community, so this year as we commemorate Queensland Mental Health Week, it is more important than ever for us to take time for our own mental health, learn the skills to build positive wellbeing, and to look out for those we know and love.

To participate in Queensland Mental Health Week events and challenges, and access resources, visit Queensland Mental Health Week | 9-17 October 2021 (qldmentalhealthweek.org.au)
