Your mental health is just as important as your physical health. Let’s take care of it together!
Help us spread the word that mental health is important for everyone by joining in Mental Health Week (October 8-14).
The annual national campaign is this year calling on South Australians to mind their health, with a focus on wellbeing, support and community.
Centacare and headspace Port Adelaide are taking part in events throughout the week. There will be exhibitions, stalls, discussions and more as we share positive reflections on mental health and work together to reduce stigma and discrimination.
Find us at:
- Stall in the Mall – Monday, October 9, from 9.30am – 3.30pm, Rundle Mall, Adelaide.
How can we support you to mind your health? Explore headspace Port Adelaide’s support services, talk to our teams and take part in fun activities on the day.
- Family & Friends Night – Monday, October 9, from 6-7.30pm, headspace Port Adelaide, 78-80 Vincent St, Port Adelaide.
