OT week

This week, the 21st-27th October,  is one of my favourites of the year – Occupational Therapy Week. The focus for this week is to celebrate and promote the importance of OT’s in the allied health community.  The main theme for the week is that OT’s can be the difference between simply existing, and living life to the full by enhancing people’s ability to live better with injury, illness or disability.

National Week of Deaf People

This week 20-26th is the National Week of Deaf People for Deaf Australia. This week celebrates the deaf community, language, culture and history. It is also an opportunity to raise awareness and recognise their achievements.

Mental Health Week

Mental Health Month

October is Mental Health Month, with the theme this year being ‘Celebrate, Connect, Grow’. This month encourages all people to think about our mental health and the mental health of those around us. It is an opportunity to ask yourself how you are feeling about yourself and your life, your relationships, and your fulfilment through activities. Would having more joy, support or meaning in your life make a difference to your mental health? Is is also a time to think how we can break down barriers and stigma’s surrounding mental health issues. If you are concerned about your mental health, or need someone to talk to please call Lifeline on: 13 11 14.
