Mental Health Awareness Week

Our Work / Mental Health Awareness Week

The Mental Health Foundation organises New Zealand's annual Mental Health Awareness Week under contract from the Ministry of Health.

Mental Health Awareness Week is endorsed by the World Federation for Mental Health and marked in over 150 countries.

Mental Health Awareness Week (MHAW) usually falls during the week of October that encompasses World Mental Health Day 10 October. The Mental Health Foundation has organised MHAW in New Zealand since 1993. This year the well-supported, nationwide event will run from 5–11 October, with the theme GIVE – your time, your words, your presence. Keep an eye on the MHAW website for updates.
