October is mental health month, and with it, world mental health day on the 10th.
Mental Health Awareness Month is the extension of Mental Health Week, which aims to improve community awareness and interest in mental health and wellbeing.
We at Right at Home would like to focus on the mental health of our carers, the elderly, and those living with a disability, not to mention the families and friends who support our carers and provide informal in-home care to their loved ones. The pandemic has brought an entirely new set of challenges and increased work pressures to the aged care workforce, and we believe that it is important to showcase this.
Mental Moments is a free livestream show being produced by the Australian Aged Care Collaboration and Royal Freemasons' Benevolent Institution (RFBI) for aged care residents, workers and families across Australia. The month-long initiative aims to bring the sector together to show appreciation for the aged care workforce and continue the conversation on the importance of mental health in aged care.
The Mental Moments show will broadcast every day at 2:00pm (AEST). Tune in to view messages from special guests, hear tips and advice from mental health experts on simple ways you can boost your mental health and enjoy the weekly live show every Friday.
And, have a look at the trailer!
