National Mental Health Month 2021

National Mental Health Month

National Mental Health Month is an initiative of the Mental Health Foundation Australia (MHFA) to advocate for and raise awareness of Australian mental health. It is an important time where the Australian community comes together to raise awareness and promote better mental health for all. Throughout this month, many events have been organised in each state of Australia aiming to attract and unite Australians of all ages and backgrounds to raise awareness and promote better mental health for all. 

The National Mental Health Month 2021 Awareness Campaign theme is:

‘Mental Health: Post Pandemic Recovery Challenges and Resilience'

This year’s theme will focus on raising awareness about mental health in various industries. Every industry has faced and many are still facing unprecedented challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

With this theme in mind, we aim to extend our campaign even wider than previous years, with events planned to embrace many different community groups and people of all ages walking on the road to recovery and fostering resilience #ResilienceAndRecovery.

Mental Health Appeal

The Mental Health Foundation Australia is the oldest not-for-profit, non-government mental health organisation in Australia, serving the community since 1930.

For the first time in the Australia's history, we are launching our very own National Mental Health Appeal!

This is a milestone for the MHFA, and on the 10th of October every year, beginning this year in 2021, we hope to make this a capstone event. The 10th of October holds much significance, coined as World Mental Health Day, so we find no day better to host this important initiative.
