Mental Health Week aims to activate, educate and engage ASU members around mental health and related issues, through the organisation of a huge variety of events by individuals and organisations across the state.
Mental Health Week is part of a national Mental Health promotion campaign held in October each year and incorporates World Mental Health Day held globally on 10 October.
The purpose of this awareness week is to engage communities in activities that promote mental health and wellbeing and also increase understanding and reduce stigma about mental illness and how it impacts on the lives of people in our community.
Everyone in the workplace can get involved by:
- Making a personal mental health promise.
- Checking in with a colleague.
- Getting social.
- Heading to a local event…or running your own.
- Monitoring your stress levels.
Please look after yourself and remember to exercise, eat well, maintain your social contacts and seek help from professional sources if required.
The ASU supports members with any health & safety matters regarding mental health & wellbeing in the workplace.
