2017 Mental Health Week

170907 MHW logo

Be part of the action. Join us for Mental Health Week 8 –14 October 2017 to promote awareness about mental health issues and wellbeing for all. The Society is proud to present a program aimed to promote, educate, engage and encourage those in the legal profession to integrate work/life balance practices into their workplace and everyday life. We have teamed up with exercise providers and fitness clubs to give you a mix of health and wellbeing exercises to try for FREE.

The Society's theme for this year’s Mental Health Week is Focus, Integrate, Nurture, Connect and Celebrate – the five steps to mental health and wellbeing.

Focus on your natural abilities and changes that will bring about positive outcomes. Integrate the different parts of your life to reinforce and enhance each other so that each part contributes to personal growth and harmony. Nurture your strengths and create a supportive environment through self-care and reflective practices. Connect with friends, family and with the community. Celebrate life each day.

Being active, having a sense of belonging and purpose in life contribute to resilience against the stresses of modern living which is vital to maintaining good mental health.

We look forward to your participation in the Society’s 2017 Mental Health Week Program that raises awareness, promotes mental health and wellbeing and celebrates you!

The full program can be found here.
