October is Mental Health Month!

October is Mental Health Month!

Every October we celebrate mental health month across Australia with the aim to talk about, raise awareness of and promote action for mental health and wellbeing! Organisations across the country will be acknowledging this month with events, activities and discussions! While every state does things individually to celebrate mental health month, the purpose is still the same!
