World Mental Health Day – October 10 — is a day for global mental health education, awareness and advocacy. An initiative of the World Federation for Mental Health to raise public awareness of mental health issues worldwide.
Mental Health Australia is delighted to be leading the World Mental Health Day campaign in Australia. As the peak not-for-profit organisation representing the mental health sector in Australia, Mental Health Australia has a focus on ensuring the whole community recognises the part we all play in creating a mentally healthy society.
Do You See What I See? challenges perceptions about mental illness in Australia and encourages everyone to look at mental health in a more positive light, in an effort to reduce stigma and make way for more people to seek the help and support they deserve. Help reduce stigma and make a #MentalHealthPromise today.
Make a Promise
See beyond the stigma and make mental health more visible by making a #MentalHealthPromise.
At home, at work, with family and friends, or in the wider community, we can all do something to help reduce stigma around mental illness and make way for more people to seek the help and support.
Select a suggested promise, or write your own promise – it’s up to you. If you write your own, you can upload a photo of yourself or something connected to your promise. We also have a range of images for you to choose from if you prefer.
You can make as many promises as you like, you don’t have to stop at just one if you feel you have more to give!
