Monday 7 to Sunday 13 October 2013

Mental illness can affect anyone. Most people will know someone who has experienced a mental health issue.  Mental illness can affect every aspect of a person’s life including relationships, study or work. During challenging times, the support that people receive from the community is vital. This includes friends, family, employers, work colleagues and health professionals.

It’s everyone’s responsibility to respond and ensure those experiencing mental health issues know they are not alone. We believe mental health is about everyone. Together, we can make a difference. We’re all in this together.

Queensland Mental Health Week Achievement Awards


The 2013 Mental Health Week Achievement Awards are designed to recognise and celebrate the achievement of individuals, groups, organisations and businesses devoted to improving the understanding and awareness of mental health in the Queensland community.

The Awards acknowledge the high standard and ongoing commitment demonstrated by those involved in innovative and effective initiatives and programs which address key mental health issues at a local, regional or state-wide level in Queensland.

The Awards will be presented at a special ceremony during Mental Health Week.
