Mental Health Week: 7-14 October 2017

Created Friday, 06 October 2017 in News
It’s Mental Health Week (7-14 Oct), and this year our message to you is:

'Act-Belong-Commit for good social and emotional well-being'

Here are a few simple ways that you can boost your social and emotional well-being this week:

  • Do something! Whether it’s having a yarn with friends, colleagues and family about Act-Belong-Commit, helping others, connecting with Aboriginal culture or going out bush. Doing things in the community increases our connections and makes us feel good inside.

  • Attend an official event! There are plenty of things on around the state, have a look here


Or phone us on 9266 4648 if you’d like to have a yarn in person about what you can to do to boost your mental health!
