Mental Health Month is recognised and celebrated throughout the month of October in NSW. The aim of the campaign is to promote the importance of early intervention practices for positive mental health and wellbeing and reduce the stigma associated with mental health. The awareness campaign is held annually in October to coincide with the World Health Organisation’s recognition of World Mental Health Day which is celebrated on the 10th of October.
As part of the campaign, WayAhead and their partners have encouraged communities around NSW to get involved with the campaign by organising events in their local community to promote mental health awareness and help reduce the stigma around mental illness as well as encouraging help seeking behaviours. In Eurobodalla, to recognise Mental Health Month WayAhead presents: Wonder at the Narooma Kinema October 19th
