Get Involved This Mental Health Month

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

Schools Pack

We are proud to continue our partnership with NSW Department of Education for Mental Health Month in schools.

WayAhead’s schools pack will be available to over 3000 schools in NSW. This collaboration brings Mental Health Month into school communities, and encourages, educators and students to learn more about mental health and the important roles they can play.

We all have a role to play

Mental Health Month is a chance to promote activities and ideas that can have a positive impact on our daily lives and the lives of others. These events and messages are tied together with a specific theme, and this year’s is “We all have a role to play”.
