Mental Health Awareness

Mental Health Awareness

Talking about mental health and illness is important. It can help us to better recognise early warning signs, understand how mental illness can affect a person’s life, and have a go-to library of appropriate supports when they’re needed.


  • 1.5 hours
  • Face to face or Virtual

An interactive exploration of mental health and mental illness. By the end of this session participants will be able to:

  • Differentiate facts from myths
  • Match mental illness terms with accurate descriptions and common symptoms
  • Recognise the impact of stigma
  • Use non-stigmatising language when talking about mental illness 
  • Identify a range of appropriate supports available

We will also share how Lifeline and other supports can help if a person is concerned that someone they know may be thinking about suicide.
