Guests at the launch include MC George Donikian (former news presenter for the Nine Network and Network Ten) and keynote speaker Jason Ball (LGBTIQ and Mental Health advocate and 2016 Greens Candidate for Higgins).
World Mental Health Day is marked on 10 October every year and in 2016 Mental Health week runs from Sunday 9 to Saturday 15 October.
Mental Health Week aims to activate, educate and engage Victorians about mental health through a week of interactive events across the state including an official launch, community festivals, art exhibitions, music, theatre and seminars.
From its beginnings in 1985, the week has grown to encompass hundreds of events and a multitude of individuals, community groups and service providers throughout the state.
