Sai Health Week 2022

Mental Health in Children & Adolescents

For several years the Sai Medical Unit of Australia, has successfully conducted various workshops, forums and webinars during Sai Health Week.

This year, Sai Health Week will be observed from Saturday, 13 August to Sunday, 21 August. The theme for this year is “Mental Health in Children & Adolescents“.

During this week, there will be a variety of educational and informative activities on the topic of mental health in our younger population. This will be presented in the form of face-to-face events or virtual in some regions.

The last 2 years, in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic and all the changes that brought about, has seen a rise in mental health issues across all ages. These issues have often in the past been subject to stigma which has in turn proven a barrier to discussion and diagnosis.

We hope that by focusing on mental health in children and adolescents, we can educate and inform people on common issues such as depression, anxiety and behavioural disorders such as ADHD and autism spectrum disorder among others. This should help to break down stigma and barriers and encourage discussion among the community and health care providers.

Note: Dates may differ in some regions, please contact the Region Presidents to know more about the events organised in the respective regions;

Sustainability Service Initiatives

Whilst service to the community is one of the main drivers of the SSIO, another aspect of service is a commitment to respect and support of our Mother Earth for all she provides. A large range of service activities are undertaken by individual regions and groups of the SSIO within Australia. To further awareness and provide opportunities, the following initiatives are highlighted. Rydalmere NSW centre has a number of sustainability projects in place that provide examples of what can be undertaken on an ongoing basis by individuals and as a group activity.

National Tree Day

There is an expression, ‘plant a tree for your grandchildren’. The trees we plant generally develop their full grandeur and potential well beyond the life of those who plant them. However, even during our short span, they provide numerous services to humankind and the entire natural environment: shade; climate amelioration, global and local; habit and air services to name a few, not to mention their aesthetic appeal. The SSIO Australia will again participate in the national tree planting drive.
