Welcome to the June edition of the Queensland Mental Health Week (QMHW) eNews! We have some important reminders and sector updates to share with you.
Firstly, thank you to everyone who applied for the QMHW Community Events Grant Program. We saw a record number of applications this year - a total of 272! The applications are now in the assessment phase, with outcomes to be announced in July.
We're excited to announce that the first wave of QMHW 2023 resources is now available to download from our website. Featuring the 2023 theme 'Awareness, Belonging, Connection', the resources include posters and social media tiles. These valuable materials will help you plan events that promote mental health awareness and wellbeing. Additional materials will be available in the coming months and merch will be available to purchase shortly.
Additionally, applications for the Recovered Futures Art Exhibition closed earlier this month. The exhibition will be held from Friday 6 to Thursday 12 October at King George Square. Hosted by the Richmond Fellowship Queensland (RFQ), this curated exhibition will showcase more than 200 artworks by artists with lived experiences of mental health challenges.
Thank you for your support of QMHW. Let's persist in our collaborative efforts to promote mental health awareness and emphasise the importance of belonging and connection.
