This month is Mental Health Month and tomorrow, 10 October, is Mental Health Day. It has been an enormously challenging year for everyone in our community, and keeping connected has helped to see us through these difficult times.

Bridge Housing staff are embracing the 2020 Mental Health Month theme: Tune In. We are tuning in to our colleagues, clients, family and friends by thinking about mental health and wellbeing, regardless of whether we have lived experience of mental illness. We are also taking the opportunity to understand the importance of good mental health in our everyday lives and encouraging help-seeking behaviours when needed. 

We are organising a guest speaker from the Black Dog Institute for late October/early November to speak to staff about mental health and wellbeing.

Please Tune In this month to the mental health of the people you love. You can visit the Black Dog Institute website for a wide range of resources to support mental health and wellbeing.
