headspace day 2017
We’re excited to announce that today is headspace day, our national day of awareness for youth mental health.
With 1 in 4 young Australians experiencing mental health issues, headspace day provides an opportunity to educate young people on the importance of taking care of their mental health.
Today, there will be politicians, sports people, celebrities and thousands of Australians nationwide sharing their personal tips on how they maintain a healthy headspace.
The aim is to generate thousands of ideas, so we please get involved by sharing your tip on how you take care of your mental wellbeing.
Our headspace day TV commercial airs today and will run nationally during mental health week. The ad features young people from various headspace centres, as well as a few famous sports stars, who all share their own personal tips on what they do to get in a healthy headspace.
