There’s so much happening already in the lead up to Mental Health Week 2021 – we don’t even know where to start! Here’s a quick update on this year’s theme and some ideas to help with your planning.
Given how critical the early years are for lifelong brain development and functioning, learning, and wellbeing, the theme for Mental Health Week 2021 in Western Australia will be: Mental health starts with our children.
The theme recognises how a person’s mental health reflects the interaction of a lifetime of individual and lifestyle factors with a range of environmental, community and family risk factors.
Mental Health Week will run 9-16 October 2021 and foster the creation, curation, and organisation of a range of resources, activities, events, factsheets, tips, and strategies in the lead up to, and during, the week.
You can help us raise awareness about the importance of protecting and enhancing our mental health, and how vital childhood experiences are for lifelong resilience, wellbeing and meaningful connection by sharing information and materials in your community this Mental Health Week.
