10 October to 17 October

Mental Health Week (MHW) is an annual national mental health promotion campaign that takes place each October and includes World Mental Health Day on the 10th October.

The theme for this year is: ‘Connect to Wellbeing’


Mental Health Week this year, calls for us all to ‘Connect to Wellbeing.’ Although the NT has not been as affected by Covid-19 as other places, the call to connect is just as important. Mental Health Week is a reminder of the importance of connecting to community, hope, strength, and identity; each of these aspects are fundamental to our wellbeing.

Mental Health Week is also a time to recognise people who have made significant contributions to the Mental Health sector. We know there are so many people in paid and voluntary roles who provide extraordinary support to others. The award winners will be announced during mental health week. You can find the nomination form here.

As like previous years mini grants will be available for organisations, who want to organise an event for Mental Health Week. Applications have been extended until the 24th September 2021. Some examples of events held by previous grant recipients are – organising a BBQ, a film night, holding a morning tea. Application forms can be found here.  If you are hosting an event, please let us know so we can put it in our online calendar.
