Mental Health Week: 6 - 14 October 2018

Wednesday 10 October is World Mental Health Day. This important event is part of Queensland Mental Health Week, which runs from Saturday 6 October to Sunday 14 October.

Queensland Mental Health Week promotes individual and community mental health and wellbeing, boosts awareness of mental illness, stigma and discrimination and celebrates the contribution of the mental health and community sectors. This year's theme is "Value mental health, because our mental health is valuable".

While looking after our mental health should always be a priority, it is especially important during times of added stress, such as when assignments are due or exams are looming. Did you know JCU has some great mental health resources to help students and staff? You can also make a free appointment to see a JCU counsellor.

If you're out and about, both Cairns and Townsville communities have a range of events to celebrate Mental Health Week. You can also access the latest research about mental health through the JCU library.
