This annual APS initiative aims to increase public awareness of how psychology can help people and communities lead healthier, happier and more meaningful lives.
Psychology Week 2015 comprises events across Australia, a media and social media campaign, a wellbeing survey and the release of a range of resources that help Australians manage stress, improve their wellbeing and achieve a healthier lifestyle.
Every year hundreds of events are run across Australia from fun runs to festivals and public lectures. During Psychology Week, the APS invites its members and the public to host and participate in events that bring psychology to the community.
Annually, the APS conducts a survey to help understand the factors impacting the wellbeing of Australians. Since 2011, the APS has been conducting its Stress and Wellbeing Survey. In 2015, the survey will have a special focus on social media and its effect on the health, wellbeing and behaviour of Australians.
There are many ways that you can get involved – by running an event, joining in on social media, downloading and sharing resources.
We invite all Australians to join in Psychology Week 2015.
