This week is Mental Health Week (official start was Sunday… But we have just had a long weekend here in Sydney and I was chilling out, taking care of my own mind!). I’m not going to harp on about the importance of heightening awareness surrounding mental illness, as I’ve said it all before. It’s definitely a mission of mine to extinguish the stigma that seems to go hand in hand with any kind of mental disorder – education is so crucial.
BUT, you can show your support by choosing to donate to mental health organisations: ABC TV has a great link to donate directly to Mental Health Research Australia. They’re also covering all sorts of topics surrounding mental health all week across their channels; there is some really interesting stuff! Various other charities are out there that you can donate to, including Lifeline, Beyond Blue, and Headspace.
Take care of yourselves, and each other, and think happy thoughts!
