WA Mental Health Week – 6th – 12th October : It Starts In Our Communities

We are pleased to put the focus this week on mental health, and the crucial part it plays in the wellbeing of our Lockridge Community.

For more than 50 years, Mental Health Week in WA has been instrumental in bringing awareness to people’s mental health and is coordinated by the  Western Australian Association for Mental Health (WAAMH) , with the support of the Government of Western Australia, Mental Health Commission and Lotterywest .

This year the focus is on how we live, learn, work and play, and being aware that it’s a combination of these factors that impact our mental well being.

Mental health is a journey. No one gets left behind.

WA Mental Health Week aims to increase mental wellbeing in WA communities by:

  • Encouraging each of us to support and look out for one another
  • Promoting mental health discussion – learning the ‘language’ of expressing feelings, good and bad
  • Continuing to raise awareness of mental health issues and reduce the stigma of seeking help.
