Mental Health Awareness Month in Australia has been assigned by some genius at WayAhead to, you guessed it, October.
Only a matter of time before it's moved under the Dept. health organisers official list. :tired_face: Why. September has World Suicide Prevention day and RUOkay day so people would still be thinking about it year-round. May was a really good time for it.

As well as October being the official National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, want to know what else it already is? :joy: Someone tell organizers that there are other months in the year? I can only sit at so many campaign benches.

    I just saw a Facebook post saying October is also miscarriage and still birth awareness month. Something I also hold close to my heart. A busy month indeed. Sorry for the bold but don't know how to get rid of it. Ignore that, worked it out
