Mental Health Council of Tasmania
Mental Health Week (MHW) for 2018 in Tasmania will take place from Sunday, 7 October to Saturday, 13 October. The dates incorporate 10 October (World Mental Health Day).
Following the first meeting of the Mental Health Week Steering Committee, it has been agreed that the theme for MHW in 2018 is again, ‘Stronger Together’. This theme will bring Tasmanian communities together during MHW to raise awareness about mental health and wellbeing; reduce stigma; build resilience and foster understanding; support wellbeing and self-care by promoting ways to maintain our mental health; and to seek help when they may need it.
MHCT is delighted to announce the 2018 Mental Health Week Small Grants program is now open. Members are encouraged to visit www.mhct.org/mentalhealthweek/grants/ who are planning to hold an event or activity during MHW to review and confirm your group or organisation is eligible and meets the MHW Small Grants selection criteria.
The 2018 Mental Health Week Small Grants program opens on Monday, 18 June 2018 and closes 5:00pm AEST on Monday, 16 July 2018.
