Queensland Mental Health Week

7 October 2023 to 15 October 2023

Queensland Mental Health Week (QMHW) is being held on 7 – 15 October 2023. QMHW encourages all of us to think about our mental health and wellbeing, regardless of whether we may have a lived experience of mental illness or not, and encourages help seeking behaviours, when needed.

Metro South Health is hosting events across the health service to bring people together to boost awareness, create a sense of belonging and connection that can have a positive impact on our daily lives and the lives of others.

The 2023 theme ‘Awareness, Belonging, Connection’ reflects the important factors that help people maintain positive mental health and wellbeing.

  • Awareness – understanding the things we need to maintain and boost our mental wellbeing and knowing when we need to reach out for help and where to get it.
  • Belonging – looking out for each other, ensuring we feel safe and supported, and understanding that however we feel, we’re not alone, and that there are others going through the same thing.
  • Connection – our relationships with our friends, families, and those that we care about, as well as the groups, clubs, and networks around us that we rely on to help keep us happy and healthy, wherever we live, work, or play.
