Queensland Mental Health Week 2023

This week is Queensland Mental Health Week. Each year one in five people will experience a concern with their mental health. So this week is an opportunity for Queenslanders to raise community awareness and understanding around mental health and wellbeing. See how Anglicare Southern Queensland is supporting clients and how you can get behind those who are experiencing challenges with their mental health.

“Prioritising mental health in parish and ministry working environments helps promote a culture of care and compassion, enhances organisational productivity and fosters the Church’s mission. It can also help reduce stigma surrounding mental health issues and encourages clergy, employees and volunteers to seek help when needed,” says Work Health and Safety Advisor Michael Kucera.



Today is R U OK? Day. This yearly campaign reminds communities about the importance of talking about challenges and asking others if they are okay. Find out more from the Anglicare Southern Queensland team in this short video
