Queensland Mental Health Week 2021

Almost half of Australians are likely to be diagnosed with a mental illness in their lifetime, leaving half of us knowing someone living with or having experienced a mental health issue. However, mental health is something every person has – and it’s important to know that everyone’s mental health varies during their life and can move back and forth along their own personal range.

At Evexia, we understand the potential impacts and benefits of mental health and the importance of maintaining, appreciating and enhancing mental health in your organizational and your people.

The importance of understanding mental health and its effects on your business are vital. Businesses receive an average return on investment of $2.30 for every $1 they invest in effective workplace mental health strategies, making investing in mental health a win-win situation for employers and employees.

Queensland Mental Health Week (QMHW) provides an opportunity to promote positive mental health and wellbeing to our communities and aims to reduce the stigma associated with mental illness.

In 2021, QMHW runs from 9-17 October in alignment with World Mental Health Day on October 10. The theme ‘Take time – for mental health’ speaks to the importance of prioritising our mental health by engaging in activities that bring joy and boost mental wellbeing.
