Queensland Mental Health Week

Add to Calendar

The Trade College ‘Take Time‘ will celebrate Queensland Mental Health Week (QMHW) from Monday 11 October to Friday 15 October. QMHW is an annual awareness week that aims to shine a spotlight on individual and community mental health and wellbeing.

The initiative is linked to National Mental Health Week and World Mental Health Day, which is held on 10 October every year.

QMHW encourages all of us to think about our mental health and wellbeing, regardless of whether we may have a lived experience of mental illness or not, and encourages help seeking behaviours, when needed.

The week also gives us the opportunity to understand the importance of mental health in our everyday lives. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices.

Each and every day across the week Trade College will have a variety of activities to engage, students, staff and appreciates to Take Time for Mental Health.
