This year, the Western Australian Association for Mental Health provided grants recognising the theme's focus on mind, body, and environment. Whether people wanted to gather and connect to increase mental health awareness by hosting an event; grow their mind by learning new skills and knowledge in a mental health course; take time out to relax and restore their energy; or stock not-for-profit services with equipment and activities for physical health and creative participation – WAAMH had it covered.
Grant applications have now closed and funds will be distributed before October 2022.
