It's World Mental Health Day! Good mental health is so important!

Community Event

Australian and New ZealandMental Health Association
It's World Mental Health Day and the message is very simple - please look after your mental health no matter who or where you are.

Isolation in regional areas makes many people even more at risk of depression and other related mental health issues. Help is out there, always remember it's better to ask for help as it can be too easy to spiral downhill especially with all the stressors we have in today's busy world.

Of course depression isn't the only mental health issue, there are so many, such as bipolar disorder and schizophrenia just to name a couple.

Here's a tweet from Lifeline - check it out.

Call Lifeline on 13 11 14, or your local GP if you feel you need some help. Also there are many other organisations designed to help people with mental health issues. Some of the organisations are 'Mind Australia' 'sane' 'headspace' and 'beyondblue'.

Even just share how you're feeling with a friend to start with. A good friend will be happy to listen.

Here's to your good mental health. Cheers, Jane D
