The Mental Health Month Reimbursement Grants Program provides funding of up to $1,000 to help local ACT groups and organisations host a mental health focused event during the month of October.

The scope of Mental Health Month events is limited only by your imagination and enthusiasm! 

Events should seek to maximise the wellbeing of individuals and the wider community and promote positive mental health.

Events will also need to comply with any social distancing measures in place in the ACT in October 2021.



Grants are for ANY community group or organisation, charity, school, university or faith-based group within or outside of the mental health sector in the ACT. 


ALL groups servicing or working within the ACT community are encouraged to apply!
