What is Mental Health Month?
Mental Health Month is an opportunity to have conversations with your friends, family and community about mental health. It’s a time to learn about self-care, community wellbeing, and available support services. The next time you or a friend need help with mental health, you feel better equipped to do something.
Wellbeing SA is committed to supporting the mental health and wellbeing of all South Australians and recognises the strength in communities is vital strengthening this.

When is Mental Health Month?
Mental Health Month falls in October, in alignment with World Mental Health Day on October 10th. South Australia’s 2021 Mental Health Month theme “We All Have A Role To Play” speaks to us all collectively being a part of raising mental health awareness, supporting each other, addressing stigma, and promoting wellbeing.
How can I get involved?
Wellbeing SA is proudly sponsoring Mental Health Month 2021 led by the Mental Health Coalition of South Australia.
A wide range of local and national events that aim to improve community awareness and interest in mental health and wellbeing will be held throughout the month of October, including festivals, comedy shows, exhibitions and online events.
