Celebrated each year in October, Mental Health Month is an important opportunity for us to think about our mental health and wellbeing. Our theme for 2017 is ‘Share the Journey’. This theme focuses on the importance of social connections in:
- Our journey to better mental health and
- Our ability to cope with life’s challenges.
Good social connections not only improve our overall mental health and wellbeing, they also build our resilience!
