Each year 1 in 5 Australians experience a mental health issue. Recent studies suggest this may increase to one quarter of Australians under the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic. This could be you, a loved one, a family member, a friend, a colleague, a neighbour

Inspired by the 2019-20 ACT Mental Health Month theme ‘Conversations & Connection’, The Wellbeing Priori-Tea aims to bring people together to have a chat over a cuppa during Mental Health Month in October.

This year we are asking Canberrans to take a break in their workplaces or community and make mental health a priority by hosting your own ‘Wellbeing Priori-tea’! It could be a morning tea, afternoon tea or high tea! You can also use your event to help raise donations for a mental health charity of your choice.*  


Register your event below to receive the ‘Wellbeing Priori-Tea’ pack which includes resources to help start the conversation, as well as information on wellbeing and local mental health services. 


When you register your organisation or business it can be listed as a partner of the program at the bottom of this page. Community groups will remain private.

*Please note: if you do wish to raise donations for a charity of your choice

this agreement will be between you and your chosen charity. MHCC ACT (coordinator of MHM ACT) is not responsible for any funds raised at your event.
