Open Minds have opened nominations for the annual Queensland Mental Health Week Achievement Awards (QMHWAA), with $4,500 available in prize money. The Awards, now in their 26th year, recognise and celebrate the achievements of those working to reduce stigma and empower those living with mental illnesses.
Any person, organisation or group that runs programs to create awareness or support people with mental illness can nominate themselves for an award. Nominations close on Monday 8 August 2022.

As well as nominating for the QMHWAA, now is also the perfect time to lock in a date and time to mark Queensland Mental Health Week 2022. This could be as simple as holding a morning tea or afternoon tea, having people enjoy a cuppa and conversation, and sharing information on mental health and help-seeking. It could be in-person or virtual!
If you're making mental health a priori-tea in your workplace, community or school, you may want to consider offering some healthy catering options to boost wellbeing. We have a new resource available for download from the dietitians at Mood Food that may help make healthy choices, easy choices.
