2020 has been a challenging year for everyone and circumstances have made it even more important for us all to raise awareness around mental health and wellbeing.

Mental Health Month is a national month celebrated each year in October, kicking off with World Mental Health Day on October 10.

CreativeCubes.Co is all about creating connections and support through our community and we know that regular meaningful conversations can make a difference.

As part of our commitment to each other’s wellbeing, we’ve rounded up some of the Aussie helplines and services you can reach out to if you or a loved one is struggling.

Our Guide For Things To Do At Home

As we eagerly anticipate for the day we gather in the CreativeCubes.Co kitchens for ‘spressi tini’s and morning tea’s, we have compiled a list of fun, interesting and exciting events you can attend, virtually!

With October being Mental Health Awareness month, we’re particularly excited to join the Official Launch of Mental Health Month on Mental Health Awareness Day! Hosted by Mental Health Foundation Australia (MHFA), you can join the virtual event and find out more information here!
