Mental health month - Small grants program



Mental health month NSW is part of a national mental health promotion campaign held in October each year. The timing of the campaign centres on World Mental Health Day, which is marked each year on October 10.

Each year a number of small grants are offered to assist the staging of mental health promotion activities or event during Mental health month. There are a number of grants available:

Organisations must have an ABN or be supported by an organisation with an ABN, and be undertaking the project in NSW. The planned activity must occur during Mental health month in October, promote positive mental health in the community and tie in with the theme for Mental health month that year. Please note, funds are not available for the self-promotion of for-profit organisations.

Judges welcome applications that are particularly creative and innovative, and those that are put forward by organisations that have not received small grant funding in recent years. Judges also look for projects that work as partnerships between organisations, particularly partnerships between mental health organisations and non-mental health organisations.
