Mental Health is Just as Important Physical Health

6th Oct 2020

Mental Health week this year was held from the Monday 5th to Friday the 9th of October and aims to bring awareness to the importance of mental health and wellbeing to the wider community, by promoting a better understating of the issues and experiences people with a mental illness face on a daily basis.

This year’s theme is “Building Healthy Communities”, with the main focus this year being the effects and impacts that the Covid-19 restrictions have had on people’s mental health and well-being across the country.

Nicole Pietsch the Communications and Health Promotion Officer from the Mental Health Association of Central Australia (MHACA) joins CAAMA’s Damien Williams and had a chat about what MHACA does and how they have been helping people coupe through some tough times.
