Good mental health is a sense of wellbeing, confidence and self-esteem. It helps us to fully enjoy and appreciate other people, day-to-day life and our environment.
On the other hand, a mental illness is a health problem that significantly affects how a person thinks, behaves and interacts with other people. One in five Australians will suffer from a mental illness in any given year.
The partnership works collaboratively to improve the conditions which support mental wellbeing and prevent mental health issues. There is a focus on young people and the prevention of high prevalence disorders, such as anxiety and depression.
