I believe it is very important to support events which help to destigmatize mental health issues and educate the public so here’s an early plug for a very worthwhile initiative.
Mental Health Week is an annual event which occurs in October. The Victorian Mental Health Week started in 1982 and this year Mental Health Week will be held from Sunday 5th October to Saturday the 11th October. Mental Health Week encompasses a number of events across Victoria including : a launch, community festivals, art exhibitions, lectures etc.
The official launch will be held on Monday 6th October in the Deakin Edge Theatre at Melbourne’s Federation Square.
