This theme promotes acceptance and understanding of the impact that being proud of who we are can have on our wellbeing. Let’s celebrate our strengths and differences and be ourselves. Important stats   - What are the figures? ·  Nearly half (45%) of the population will experience a mental disorder at some stage in their lives. ·  Almost one in five Australians (20%) will experience a mental illness in a 12-month period. ·  During a one-year period, anxiety disorders will affect 14% of the population and depression will affect 6%. ·  Depression is one of the most common conditions in young people and increases during adolescence. ·  At least one third of young people have had an episode of mental illness by the time they are 25 years old. ·  People living with a mental illness are more likely to be victims of crime than a perpetrator. ·  Mental illnesses are not purely ‘psychological’ and can have many physical features. ·  Anyone can develop a mental illness and no one is immune to mental health problems. ·  Most people with mental illness recover well and are able to lead fulfilling lives in the community when they receive appropriate ongoing treatment and support. ·  Women were more likely than men to use services for mental health problems. Approximately two-thirds of people with a mental illness do not receive treatment in a 12-month period. ·  It is estimated that up to 85% of homeless people have a mental illness. About us   Bega Valley Mental Health Month Committee is a Subcommittee of the Bega Valley Suicide Prevention Action Network (SPAN) which was established in 2010 as a community response to concerns about suicide prevention as well as reducing the impacts of those bereaved by suicide. The network believes that suicide can be prevented and that everyone has a role to play in suicide prevention. For further details call SPAN Chair Liz Seckold on 0447 272 893.
