About Mental Heath Week WA
Coordinated by the Western Australian Association for Mental Health, with support from the WA Mental Health Commission, Mental Health Week (MHW) provides a prime opportunity to address and highlight the important connection between social determinants and mental health; and promote effective prevention strategies to keep people mentally healthy.
In 2022, Mental Health Week in WA will be held over 8-15 October with the theme: 'Where we live. How we live. What we've lived.'
Understanding how the body, mind and environment intersect is essential to overall wellbeing.
Our bodies keep physical score of what we experience – it's important to encourage a trauma-informed lens in trying to understand challenging behaviours, intrusive thoughts and reactions. Learning how to process, heal and grow from negative experiences shapes our resilience, access to new opportunities, coping skills, strong connections and relationships, and quality of life.
