The month of October is National Mental Health Month!
This campaign is an initiative of the Mental Health Foundation Australia (MHFA) to raise awareness of Australian our mental wellbeing. It is so important that the Australian community comes together to raise awareness and promote better state of mind for all. The MHFA is the oldest not-for-profit, non-government mental health organisation in Australia, serving the community since 1930.
Throughout this month, they have teamed up to organise many events 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.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, every industry has faced and many are still facing unprecedented challenges. That’s why this year’s theme is ‘Mental Health: Post Pandemic Recovery Challenges and Resilience’.

If you’d love an activity where you can come to clear your mind with fresh air and maintain social interaction with your peers, exercise with a friend next time! Workout and talk it out at the same time. It’s super important to reach out to friends and loved ones if you’re struggling.
