This week is Queensland Mental Health Week (5-13 October) and this year’s theme is “Take time for Mental Health”.
Mater Youth Consultancy consumer’s group has developed a range of activities to promote and encourage Mater People to ‘take time for mental health.’
“Take time” is about the simple, yet proven things everyone can do to boost mental wellbeing. It's also about breaking down the stigma associated with mental illness and reaching out to people in our communities who need support.
The activities will take place throughout Mental Health Week and will feature an art exhibition showcasing artworks from patients and staff.
Mater has partnered with The Mad Hatters Festival in a community forum "The Art of Wellbeing" focusing on how art and creative activity support wellbeing, recovery and help break down social isolation.
Around the hospital different departments have been participating in various events like our Endoscopy and Childcare teams trying to help stamp out the stigma around mental health wearing their Odd Socks to start the conversation about everyone’s mental health.
Mental Health Week is an annual event that aims to shine a spotlight on what we can all do to look after our mental health and reach out to those who need support.
During Mental Health Week people across the state come together through local events, conversations and activities to raise awareness of the importance of positive mental health and wellbeing.
