Perth Clinic will be participating in the Australian Private Hospitals Association “Elephant in the Room” campaign again this year. This campaign aims to illustrate the fact that mental health is often the “elephant” in the room that no-one wants to discuss. This year’s campaign will have a focus on anxiety and depression.
During mental health week the inflatable elephant will visit various places such as a GP Practice, an emergency department and an educational institution to distribute flyers and promote Mental Health Week. Photos of the elephant’s journey will be placed on the Australian Private Hospitals Association website and Facebook page.
A range of other activities are planned including a community morning tea, art exhibition and distribution of promotional materials.
