Who should get involved?


People power drives Queensland Mental Health Week
  • Invite others to join in — friends, family, neighbours, team and work mates
  • Get your local networks involved — schools, councils, community and sporting organisations and businesses

Include everybody

Make an effort to be inclusive of everyone in the community, or plan an event for particular groups, such as:

  • People with lived experience, their family members and carers
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples
  • People with culturally diverse backgrounds
  • LGBTIQ people (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer)
  • Men
  • Young people
  • Older people


Great ways businesses can support Queensland Mental Health Week
  • Organise your own event — ask your employees to coordinate an event
  • Invite a mental health organisation — many organisations share their specialist knowledge about maintaining mental health, wellbeing and productivity in the workplace
  • Partner with community organisations — Join in and support one of the many community-led events happening in your area (Search events)
  • Show your support — you don’t have to host an event, just show your support by putting the mental health week logo on your website for the week (link) or sharing information resources with your employees
  • Sponsor an event — There are some excellent community events to support, for a very small investment.
