Mental Health Week

The Mental Health Commission, in partnership with the WA Association for Mental Health (WAAMH), coordinate events to recognise the Mental Health Week, as well as World Mental Health Day.


Mental Health Week raises community awareness about mental health issues and is held every October each year to coincide with World Mental Health Day that is held on 10 October. 


The aim of Mental Health Week is to promote social and emotional wellbeing to the community, encouraging people to maximise their health potential, enhancing the coping capacity of communities, families, individuals and increasing mental health recovery.


The 2015 Mental  Health Week is being held from 2 to 10 October.  The 2015 theme is Act Belong Commit.
