7–15 October 2023


The theme for Queensland Mental Health Week (QMHW) 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. There are six blocks of wellbeing that inform our approach. Information on the building blocks of wellbeing can be found on the Dear Mind website.
