Nearly fifty percent of all Australians will experience at least one episode of mental ill health in our lives. Almost everyone is affected in some way, directly or as family, friends, carers and colleagues.  Mental Health is the challenge of our times.

The aim of Mental Health Week is to promote social and emotional wellbeing in the Community. The theme is to Make a Move Towards Better Mental Health.
