This year's Mental Health WA Week theme:
Mind, Body and Environment
Every year in October, the WA Association for Mental Health runs Mental Health WA Week with a theme on mental health.
This year the focus is on Where we live. How we live. What we lived. The theme is focused on 3 areas that have an effect on our mental health:
The mind is an area of mental wellbeing that includes many self-help and therapeutic options that can employ to improve how we think and how we feel.
The old saying, “a healthy mind comes from a healthy body” frames this approach to our mental health by using good nutrition, healthy activity and exercise and being proactive in seeking help for medical conditions that are affecting us.
A healthy environment is a very important consideration to our wellbeing. A safe and secure place to live, letting the power of nature heal us, and how we look after our environment reflects on our wellbeing – when we look after ourselves and each other, we can all become well.
