For Psychology Week 2017, we are building on the Compass for Life campaign of last year and highlighting how psychologists can help Australians to thrive. This campaign is complementary to the national Believe in Change advertising campaign currently being run by the APS.
The hub for National Psychology Week 2017 will be www.compassforlife.org.au where members and the public will be able to find information, feature events, download resources and order promotion packs.
A range of new content will be produced including themed articles, tips and video interviews, and podcasts with experts in the field.
Public events, run by members and the APS National Office, will be a feature of the week. Free resources and merchandise will be available for order to assist with promotion.
There will also be a media campaign based on a survey exploring the impact of technology (including social media) on the wellbeing, behaviour and self-image of Australians. The results will be shared with media and form the basis of social media activity.
