Mental Health Week kicks off
The Mental Health Complaints Commissioner Lynne Coulson Barr and other MHCC staff members will be at Federation Square on Monday for the launch of Mental Health Week 2015.
Organised by the Mental Health Foundation of Australia (Victoria), the week promises a stimulating program that will mobilise, educate and engage Victorians about mental health.
Running from 4 October to World Mental Health Day on 10 October, this year’s event focuses around the theme: Mental Health – what do you know? and encourages everyone to learn more about an issue that affects one in five of us at any given time.
The Minister for Health, the Hon Martin Foley MP, will deliver the keynote address at Monday’s official launch. We’re pleased to participate and encourage you to spread the word to your networks and get involved in the events listed.
