In celebration of Mental Health Month, Sydney Local Health District is running a Photography Competition. The competition is open to all mental health carers, consumers, inpatients and anybody with a lived experience of mental illness residing in the state of NSW and Sydney Local Health District staff.

Theme:  ‘Building Resilience’

Our lives after the COVID-19 pandemic have changed in so many ways. Social distancing, health screening, mask wearing, hand hygiene and isolation have become the new norm. We are seeking photographs that portray your resilience post pandemic. Show us the things that keep you strong, safe and positive.

Along with your photograph we want you to tell us, in a maximum 100 words, the thoughts and feelings behind your photograph.
