The Art of Our Healing was an exhibition by participants of the Mental Health Association of Central Australia to celebrate Mental Health Week from 9-15 October 2016.

Mental Health Week is Australia’s way of raising community awareness about mental health and celebrates World Mental Health Day which falls on 10 October every year.

It’s a chance for all of us to improve our knowledge of how to maintain good mental health. Everyone in our community can learn how to build resilience, and how to aid people in recovery from mental illness.

Mental Health Week is also an important opportunity to showcase the amazing achievements and talents of people attending mental health services.

That’s why, for four months in 2016, participants of MHACA sat together in the Drop in Centre on Lindsay Avenue crafting felt, papier mâché, collage and block print creations for this exhibition.

The Art of Our Healing was a showcase of their wonderful artistic skill and ability.

The Art of Our Healing was proudly sponsored by a grant from the Northern Territory Government Community Benefit Fund.

Eating well, exercising regularly, getting enough sleep, and avoiding alcohol and smoking support our wellbeing. Smoking and alcohol are often used when people are under stress, but these addictive substances can make symptoms worse in the long run. Whilst they can create an immediate sense of relaxation, people who use them then experience withdrawal symptoms which can increase anxiety. Smoking is not recommended and Australian guidelines for alcohol use for healthy adults is no more than 2 standard drinks a day.
