Supporting the mental health of your community

There are many Australians who have experienced, are currently experiencing or will experience a mental illness in their lifetime.

According to the Mental Health Foundation Australia, one in five (20%) Australians aged 16-85 experience a mental illness in any year. The most common mental illnesses are depressive, anxiety and substance use disorders. These three types of mental illness often occur in combination.

This list of resources may help you to raise awareness of mental health issues, educate your community on the stigma that surrounds mental health and provide pathways to support.
