This year the theme is: Nature is Key. Last year, we connected with nature for good mental health and wellbeing and we were blown away by the support and enthusiasm for the theme. So we’re doubling down again this year and looking to nature to grow, support and nurture our mental health and wellbeing.

The MHAW Lockout is returning for a second year. On World Mental Health Day (10 October), we’re encouraging employers to lock their staff out of the office for an hour and give them the opportunity to connect with the ordinary nature around their workplace. Last year, hundreds of workplaces downed tools for picnics, walks, tree-climbing, footy games and more and we think it will be even bigger this year. More information about this great event is coming soon – make sure you’re registered for updates to be kept in the loop.
