Mental Health Week

Monday 5th October / presented by Chris Wheeldon

Mental Health Week is held in October each year to coincide with World Mental Health Day (10 October).

Mental Health Week 2015 will run from 2-10 October, with the theme of Act Belong Commit.

The aim of MHW is to raise community awareness about mental health issues, promote social and emotional wellbeing to the community, encourage people to maximise their health potential, enhance the coping capacity of communities, families, individuals and increase mental health recovery.

Anglicare WA Youth Consultant Jethro Sercombe joined RTRFM's Chris Wheeldon on The Mag, to discuss how individuals and communities can support mental heath awareness recovery.

The Mental Health Commission, in partnership with the WA Association for Mental Health (WAAMH), coordinates events as part of Mental Health Week and World Mental Health Day.

Led by CEO Rod Astbury, these organisations support a variety of events, including the Mental Health Good Outcomes Awards.

Rod joined Chris Wheeldon on The Mag to discuss WAAMH’s role in this year’s event.
