October is Mental Health Month and as part of the 2020 World Mental Health Day campaign, Mental Health Australia is encouraging everyone to make a promise to “Look after your mental health, Australia.”
It is a call to action for the one in five Australians affected by mental illness annually, and for the many more impacted by the current COVID-19 pandemic, and the increased uncertainty and anxiety that has ensued.
With an increased focus on the mental health of our communities.
The October Mental Health Month calendar is a great way to start, and includes an action each day around looking after your mental health. It might be taking time out, eating well, sleeping well, showing gratitude, connecting with a friend or family member, or simply watching your favourite movie or getting dressed in your Sunday best… on a Monday.
