Mental Health Month

Mental Health Month is celebrated each year in the month of October in NSW. This awareness 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. This month also gives us the opportunity to understand the importance of mental health in our everyday lives and encourages help seeking behaviours when needed.

This year the theme for Mental Health Month is Share the Journey. Click here for our Share the Journey Classroom Activity. Don’t forget to send in a photo of your displays to win some chocolates and a mini bandaged bear! Email us at schoollink@chw.edu.au.
