October is Mental Health Month.
It’s an opportunity to reflect on mental health and wellbeing, the lived experience of mental illness, and the importance of good mental health in everyday lives.
Inner West is partnering with Sydney Local Health District Mental Health Services to raise awareness of Mental Health Month with an open mic afternoon, Heaps Mad.
Heaps Mad - 27 October at 4pm
Get your act together - for a 5 minute spot - celebrating mental health month.
At this open mic afternoon we are asking people to come along and perform.
From poetry to opera, interpretive dance to rock - show us your creative side and you can win a $200 gift voucher.
Mental Health Month is celebrated each year in the month of October in NSW. This month 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.
It also gives us the opportunity to understand the importance of good mental health in our everyday lives and encourages help seeking behaviours when needed.
