About Mental Health Month  

Mental Health 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 seeking help when needed.

October is Mental Health Month and the theme is Tune In.  

To raise awareness we are partnering with Sydney Local Health District Mental Health Services to run a short video competition.    

Short video competition

We  invite local creatives to submit 3 to 4 minute videos in celebration of Mental Health Month on the theme of Tune In.

In your submission answer/interpret one or all of these questions:

1)What has been one thing that worked really well for your mental health during lockdown
2)How have you stayed connected
3)What would you recommend to someone who is struggling

Submit your interpretation or answers to these questions via performance, music, spoken word, interpretive dance, poetry.

Essentially any form of expression that tells a story!

There are 20 x $150 cash prizes available!

Theme 

The theme for October 2021 Mental Health Month is Tune In.

Tuning In means being present, being aware of what’s happening within you, and in the world around you.
- Tune In to your senses – what can you sense right now? What can you feel?
- Tune In to your communities – what’s happening that you can be part of, or that you can help others be part of?
- Tune In to stigma – how do attitudes and understandings of mental health and wellbeing impact people’s ability to live the lives they want?
