Introducing Queensland Mental Health Week 2020

Introducing Queensland Mental Health Week 2020

Continuing on from last year the theme will be Take time — for mental health, and the visual identity has been developed using the artwork Communicate through our strengths by Aboriginal artist Ailsa Walsh.

The artwork has a powerful and positive message about the importance of communication, values and culture to mental wellbeing that we believe will resonate with many Queenslanders at the moment, especially with its symbolisim of Wi-Fi bars showing how new technologies can help us connect when we can’t be face to face.

The outbreak of COVID-19 has impacted us all in varying ways and Queensland Mental Health Week (QMHW) is our opportunity to come together and shine a spotlight on what we can do to improve mental health and wellbeing in our communities. 

Right now, we don’t know exactly what QMHW 2020 will look like, but we do know we will find ways celebrate, raise awareness and reduce stigma.

If we can’t gather in-person at events we will come together online and through other activities that provide social connection, while we remain physically distanced. We will also think of innovative ways to communicate and engage with those who need support.
