Mental health campaign for COVID-19 launched by Department of Health


The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted all Australians. Many are facing financial uncertainty, disruption to families and communities, and mental health challenges—some for the first time. Seeing the effect isolation has due to this pandemic, the Department of Health Australia has launched a new mental health campaign for those who struggle with their mental health.

“How’s your head today?” is a new national COVID-19 mental health campaign that urges people to prioritise their mental health, raise awareness about how to identify when something is wrong, and encourage people to seek help.

The national COVID-19 mental health campaign – How’s your head today? aims to help Australians experiencing mental health impacts caused by the COVID-19 pandemic by helping them to:

  • make their mental wellbeing a priority
  • recognise the signs of poor mental health
  • know where they can

  • seek support when they need it

‘How’s your head today?’ is part of the Australian Government’s $48.1 million support of the mental health campaign, Mental Health and Wellbeing Pandemic Response Plan, to help Australians whose mental health is impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

This mental health campaign highlights ways to help Australians cope with challenges such as staying connected, building a daily routine and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. It will help Australians recognise when they are not coping and where to find information and support.
