New Campaign encourages Western Australians to Be Positive. Be Connected. Be Active.
In recognition of heightened levels of stress and anxiety in the community during this unprecedented time, Minister for Mental Health Roger Cook has launched a dedicated campaign to help Western Australians manage their mental health and wellbeing.
The Think Mental Health Be Positive. Be Connected. Be Active. campaign focuses on self-care and wellbeing strategies that people can use to support themselves and each other during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The campaign encourages Western Australians to be positive, connected and active to protect their mental health and wellbeing, by linking them to support services and providing online resources.
Be Positive. Be Connected. Be Active will run Statewide, on TV, radio, online, music streaming and podcast placements, as well as in digital, GP, pharmacy and bus back advertising.
It is important to reach out for help if feeling overwhelmed. The check-up tool on the Think Mental Health website is also available for people to assess how they are feeling and points to advice, tips and support.
To talk to someone, beyondblue is available 24/7 on 1300 224 636 to provide wellbeing counselling and mental health support for day to day needs.
