The new theme for Queensland Mental Health Week (QMHW) in 2022 is ‘Awareness, Belonging, Connection’, reflecting the important factors that help people maintain positive mental health and wellbeing.

Icons for the QMHW theme. Above the word "Awareness" is an orange circle with the outline of an eye. Above the word "Belonging" is a purple circle with the outline of three people. Above the word "Connection" is a green circle with the symbol of people in a circle holding hands.

QMHW provides an opportunity for all Queenslanders to consider and connect with the people and communities that they rely on to help them be mentally healthy, through a range of events and activities.

To align with this year’s theme, and build upon awareness-raising endeavours in previous years, we will also be encouraging people to learn about the activities that boost our mental health as part of the QMHW campaign. Information on the building blocks of wellbeing and help-seeking avenues will be shared via our communications channels.

The six building blocks to strong mental wellbeing.

The previous theme for QMHW was Take time — for mental health.
