Mental Health Month NSW is part of a national mental health promotion campaign held throughout October each year. The campaign aims to increase awareness and promote mental health and wellbeing for all people living in NSW. Mental Health Month is coordinated by WayAhead – Mental Health Association NSW.
Mental Health Month 2022 Small Grant Applications Now Open!
Each year Way Ahead awards over 45 grants in 5 categories to people across the state. These grants support communities and organisations to create their own events and projects for Mental Health Month. The grants on offer include $500 grants and $1000 grants. The culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) grants are awarded for projects that promote the Mental Health Month theme to CALD communities and involve CALD communities in the planning and implementation of projects. The application process is designed to be as accessible as possible, so don't worry if you don't have a grant writer, Way Ahead is looking for wonderful ideas, not perfect grammar.
To find out more and to apply for a grant visit the Mental Health Month website.
