Mental Health Week 2019: 7 – 11 October 2019 Thanks to All Our Members Working in Mental Health

08 October 2019

The theme for Mental Health Week 2019 is:

Mind Your Health.
Your mental health is just as important as your physical health.
Let’s take care of it together.

Mental Health Week is an annual national event that aims to improve community awareness and interest in mental health and wellbeing.

World Mental Health Day is marked every year on 10 October.

These roles include Social Work, Occupational Therapy, Psychology, Speech Pathology, Dietetics, Administration, Lived Experience (Consumer Consultants and Carer Consultants), Allied Health Assistants, Community Rehabilitation Workers, Clinical Support Workers, Forensic Court and Victim Services, and Management.

Our members provide essential services to people living with mental health issues and their families and friends, not just when unwell, but in maintaining all aspects of a healthy life. Their work also includes awareness raising and education around prevention and early intervention.

The PSA thanks our members working in the mental health space for the critical role they play in our community.
