October 2021

Mental Health Month is a great opportunity to encourage awareness of mental health, and social and emotional wellbeing in our community.

Celebrated each year in October, Mental Health Month aims to raise awareness, decrease stigma, and empower people to seek help, for themselves or others. This can give people from our community the awareness and the courage to consider their mental health and wellbeing as something that they can work on.

The theme for Mental Health Month 2021 is ‘Tune In’.

  • Tuning In means being present, being aware of what’s happening within you, and in the world around you.  
  • Tune In to your senses – what can you sense right now? What can you feel?
  • Tune In to your communities – what’s happening that you can be part of, or that you can help others be part of?
  • Tune In to stigma – how do attitudes and understandings of mental health and wellbeing impact people’s ability to live the lives they want?

The Northern Beaches Mental Health interagency working group has filmed the activities to enjoy online:

The ’Safe and Sound Webinar Series’ (held in 2020) featured 6 webinars from a range of speakers from local support services and organisations sharing tips and information about key stressors and the services available to help you and the people around you live well.
