Mental Health Awareness Week

+ Add to my Calendar

This year’s Mental Health Awareness Week (MHAW) is September 21 to 27, and the theme is Reimagine Wellbeing Together: He Tirohanga Anamata. It is more timely than ever as we reflect on the uncertainties and stresses caused by COVID-19.  

This annual event led by the Mental Health Foundation is a chance for your workplace to look at the experiences, actions, relationships and surroundings that make you feel good, stay well and uplift your wellbeing.

MHAW 2020 is an opportunity for everyone to redefine and rediscover what wellbeing looks like, during COVID-19 and beyond. You may have wellbeing tools in your kete/basket to share with others, or perhaps you’re looking for new ways to give yourself a boost.

Register here for exclusive MHAW updates to help you spread the word and get involved in the week: www.mhaw.nz/register

There are MHAW 2020 digital resources available for you to use. You can download the new Facebook banner, as well as screensavers, e-signatures and more from here

You’ll find more information on MHAW 2020 and on wellbeing here.

Looking for other resources? See the Five Ways to Wellbeing at Work toolkit to help you incorporate the Five Ways into your workplace, and the range of resources developed as part of the Mental Health Foundation's Working Well guides.

You could use MHAW to create a Mental Health Policy for your workplace. Use the Workplace Policy Builder to create a mental wellbeing policy that suites your business and staff, and complies with current law.
