It doesn't matter if you have a mental illness, or care for someone who has a mental illness, having an interest in maintaining good health is impotant both for ourselves and the people we care for.
So this week is about making a promise to yourself to care for YOU. Throughout the week we'll be setting Community Challenges to increase our mental health.
Look out for:
Monday - SANE's Mind and Body expert will be getting the ball rolling, setting challenges to get you moving about and thinking about how to stay well.
Tuesday - Topic Tuesday: In the Lived Experience Forum we will have mindfulness specialist and registered psychologist, Jordan, from Mindfulgym will be giving practical tools, advice and exercises to incorpoate mindfulness into your life. 6pm - 8pm AEST
Wednesday - Random acts of kindness challenge
Thursday - Technology: sharing & rating apps that help our mental health
Friday - Wrap up
We would also love to hear your thoughts about ABC's Mental As... campaign running throughout the week.
