About QMHW

Queensland Mental Health Week (QMHW) is an annual event that aims to shine a spotlight on what all of us can do to look after our mental health and reach out to those who need support.

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

This year’s theme is Take time — for mental health

Take time is about the simple yet proven things everyone can do to boost mental wellbeing!

Take time is also about breaking down the stigma associated with mental illness and reaching out to people in our communities who need support.

During QMHW people across the state come together through local events, conversations and activities to raise awareness of the importance of positive mental health and wellbeing.

There is something for everyone with events and activities including art shows, expos, fun runs, walks, and educational sessions.
