St Mary’s College is celebrating Mental Health Week (October 7-13) during the school holidays.
To promote the value of mental health and wellbeing in our school community, we are encouraging SMC staff and students to share photos that show how they are choosing to unwind during the school break, using the hashtag #smconabreak.
From relaxing activities such as gardening, swimming and playing with pets; connecting with nature and green spaces; to increasing your heart rate by going for a run or playing a sport; we would love to hear about what you are doing to keep your body and mind happy and fighting fit.
About Mental Health Week
Mental Health Week is an annual, national event that aims to improve community awareness and interest in mental health and wellbeing.
This year, the theme of Mental Health Week is ‘Stronger Together’. The theme provides an inclusive and overarching theme for Tasmanian communities to come together to:
- raise awareness about mental health and wellbeing.
- build resilience and foster understanding.
- support wellbeing and self-care by promoting ways to maintain our mental health.
- encourage individuals to seek help when they may need it.
