Anglicare’s Community Services team is adding a dash of fun to an informative online expo to mark Mental Health Week (5-10 October).

Anglicare and the Mental Health Council of Tasmania will partner with other organisations to deliver an online event  between 5 – 10 October that aims to inspire and inform people throughout Tasmania. It will also connect people to providers of mental health and wellbeing services that operate on the North West Coast.

A highlight of the event is daily keynote presentations from speakers including:

  • Dr Chris Jones, Anglicare Tasmania CEO
  • Connie Digolis – CEO of the Mental Health Council of Tasmania. Connie will talk about the importance of mental health and wellbeing in the workplace.
  • #inourownwords – Mind, the mental health charity. This informative and inspiring video gives voice to 13 people, aged 18-25 who talk about what it’s like to live with a mental health issue, the importance of early intervention and what helps them cope.
  • Phil Nunn – Psychologist, counsellor and educator. Phil will give his insider tips on how to work effectively with young people. Anglicare will also make available a recorded version of a recent training webinar Phil did with Anglicare staff.
  • Jonathan Turk – Leader of Anglicare’s financial counselling service. Jonathan will talk about the impact COVID-19 has had on our economy, and the flow-on effects to people’s mental health.


Anglicare’s team of on-the-ground practitioners will share their experiences of working with children and youth and people who use drugs and alcohol, while a two-hour training webinar with Phil Nunn is another addition to the program.

“Mental Health Week is all about supporting people to develop and maintain positive mental health,” says Anglicare’s Program Manager Health and Wellbeing Carlene Hutton.

“In the online expo we explore the concept of mindfulness and show you how to find a community group or activity near you,” she says. “There are also practical tools, hints and tips in the ‘recovery hub’ and fun quizzes to take.  You will also find regular updates on the Anglicare Tasmania Facebook page.”
