Every year in October, around the time of World Mental Health day on the 10th, people all over the world celebrate National Mental Health Week. Each state in Australia celebrates their own mental health week/month. The week will aim to raise awareness about mental health and reduce the stigma surrounding it.

Going out for a walk, chatting with friends or taking a relaxing bath with Salts, can help to reduce daily stress or struggle, but remember there's always a professional who can help you to deal and improve your mental well-being.

All across Australia, there will be a range of events and activities held throughout the week, including:

  • Mental health awareness workshops
  • Self-care sessions
  • Support group meetings
  • Social media campaigns
  • Fundraising events

During Mental Health Week 2022, we encourage everyone to take the time to check in on their mental health and well-being. If you or someone you know is struggling, please reach out for help. There are many organisations and services available to support you.

If you need immediate assistance, please call emergency services on 000.
