Mental Health Promotion

WAAMH actively promotes positive attitudes towards mental health and takes part in awareness initiatives that contribute to better mental health and wellbeing, including coordination of WA Mental Health Week  in partnership with WA's Mental Health Commission. 

We aim to inform and educate the community on how to better respond to the challenges mental health issues present, build resilience, reduce stigma associated with mental illness and promote mentally healthy communities.
