Mental Health Month Events

With over 30 events planned across the ACT for Mental Health Month in 2021, it is set to be another amazing year!

COVID-19 Lockdown in the ACT has meant many events have changed how, what and when they will deliver events for Mental Health Month this year. Please check with the event provider whether there have been any changes to the format of the event. 

If you are interested in hosting an event for 2021 and would like to promote it in the calendar we encourage you to register your event.
