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 theme Tune In
The theme for Mental Health Month 2020 is Tune In.
Tuning In means being present, being aware of what’s happening within you, and in the world around you.
Tune In to your senses – what can you sense right now? What can you feel?
Tune In to your communities – what’s happening that you can be part of, or that you can help others be part of?
Tune In to stigma – how do attitudes and understandings of mental health and wellbeing impact people’s ability to live the lives they want?
Taking a moment to Tune In can help still and focus your mind, it can help you understand what’s going on for you and others. Tuning in can help you find a new perspective, and it can help you reflect and be present. For more information about the Tune In theme visit the WayAhead Mental Health Month Website.
