CheckUP is proud to coordinate Queensland Mental Health Week (QMHW) on behalf of the Queensland Mental Health Commission with the support of a strong cross-sector collaboration.
QMHW is an annual awareness week that aims to shine a spotlight on individual and community mental health and wellbeing. CheckUP has coordinated QMHW since 2018 and administered the associated Community Events Grant Program since 2021.
The 2023 theme ‘Awareness, Belonging, Connection’ reflects the important factors that help people maintain positive mental health and wellbeing.
We encourage Queenslanders to get involved in the week in a way that is meaningful to them. You can take time to learn what activities boost your mental wellbeing, look out for those you care about, and connect with your community by participating in one of the hundreds of events happening across the state. Queensland Mental Health Week is a time when people are prompted to find out more about mental health and seek help for problems they may be facing, so remember, a conversation can play a powerful role in connecting someone to the care they need.
