Share the Mental Health Journey this October

Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith today encourages locals to ‘Share the Journey’ by getting involved in Mental Health Month this October, with the NSW Government calling for people to come alongside family, friends or colleagues who are living with mental illness or having mental health issues.

Stuart Ayres said Mental Health Month is a reminder that friends, loved ones, work colleagues, or even ourselves, might need help.

“Mental health issues will affect one in five Australians every year, and those who don’t experience mental health challenges personally will most likely know someone who does,” Stuart Ayres said.

“Mental Health Month helps to raise the community’s awareness and understanding of mental health, and events are happening both in Penrith and across NSW.”

Locally, the Penrith Mental Health Wellness Event will take place at the Mondo (outside Joan Sutherland Centre) at Penrith Plaza between 12pm-4pm on Thursday 4th October, 2018. There will be a range of services which support mental health well-being on the day, as well as a range of free activities such as rides, food and entertainers.

NSW Mental Health Month falls annually in October. People across the State come together to hold events and promote good mental health and wellbeing in their local communities.

Minister for Mental Health Tanya Davies said the message this year is that you don’t have to be a mental health expert, just a supportive friend and a good listener.

“Mental Health Month gives members of the community the opportunity to connect with each other and play an active role in the conversation about mental health to tackle the stigma that still exists around mental illness,” Mrs Davies said.

“We want the message to be clear, if you notice changes in behaviour from those around you or in yourself, seek help, reach out and talk to your GP about supports that are available.”

If you or someone you know needs urgent crisis support call Lifeline 13 11 14, or for local mental health services phone the NSW Mental Health Line on 1800 011 511.

For more information or to get involved in Mental Health Month 2018, visit the Mental Health Month website.
