World Mental Health Day

This Saturday, 10 October, marks World Mental Health Day.

This year, Mental Health Australia is challenging the negative perceptions around mental illness. One in five Australians are affected by mental illness annually, yet many don’t seek help because of stigma.

You can support the campaign by making a #MentalHealthPromise to look after your own wellbeing.
