MELBOURNE, 25 September 2020: The Mental Health Foundation Australia (MHFA) is hosting the National Mental Health Month Awareness Campaign in October this year. The aim is to reach out to and educate as many Australians as possible, “to help reduce stigma and facilitate positive and non-judgemental discussion surrounding the important topic of mental health in Australia.
With one in five Australians experiencing a mental health illness, it is time we give mental health due attention, and that is exactly what the MHFA is wanting to achieve,” says an MHFA press release today.
The theme for this year’s National Mental Health Month Awareness Campaign, the press release says, is Mental Health Matters. This theme encapsulates and highlights the gravity of the topic of mental health, and how important it is to address in the Australian community. 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 to raise awareness that #MentalHealthMatters.
The campaign has many events planned across Australia, throughout October 2020. SEE BELOW:
