Mental Health Week 2013

Mental Health Week will run from Monday 7 to Sunday 13 October 2013. This will coincide with World Mental Health Day which is marked on 10 October every year.

The theme of this year’s Mental Health Week, ‘We’re all in this together’, reflects that mental health is about everyone and that together, we can make a difference.

In Queensland, Open Minds is leading Mental Health Week celebrations.

Queensland’s Mental Health Commissioner Dr Lesley van Schoubroeck will participate in a range of activities including:

  • a Q&A panel discussion on the challenges and opportunities in mental health policy and
  • the official opening of this year’s Mental Awareness Foundation Walk for Awareness on Sunday 13 October. This year’s fundraising event will support Mates in Construction and GROW.
