Psychology week

National Psychology Week is an annual initiative of the Australian Psychological Society (APS), that aims to increase public awareness of how psychology can help Australians lead healthier, happier and more meaningful lives. The theme this year is the Power of Human Connection, and the campaign is looking to captivate a wider audience through social media to raise greater awareness and break down the stigma of mental health.

You can take part in this years National Psychology Week by checking out the APS’s Tips to Connect to Thrive, use their online resources, sign up to their Blog, or download the results of the comprehensive report into Loneliness in Australia.
