Psychology Week 2015

This annual APS initiative that aims to increase public awareness of how psychology can help people and communities lead healthier, happier and more meaningful lives.

Psychology Week 2015 will have two focuses.

First, there will be a focus on the impacts, positive and negative, that social media is having on our lives, behaviour and mental health. 

Second, NPW2015 will include the annual APS Stress and Wellbeing Survey. What will be key to this is whether Australians have lower stress levels and higher wellbeing levels than last year.  

Every November, hundreds of Australian psychologists across the country run NPW events to highlight psychology and its contribution to the Australian community. You will be able to locate your nearest NPW event. 

Here are some details about last year's 2014 APS Stress and Wellbeing in Australia Survey:
