SBS marks one year of Mind Your Health' this World Mental Health Day

Media Releases

SBS is providing more educational and uplifting stories through its Mind Your Health portal including a new season of the popular meditation podcast Great Minds, new health explainer videos and more.

As part of SBS's Mind Your Health initiative, new content is launching including a new season of the popular Great Minds podcast, a video explainer on the importance of breast cancer screening in ten languages and a comprehensive explainer on accessing free medical services, produced by SBS's Australia Explained in 21 languages.

The launch of this new series coincides with World Mental Health Day (October 10) and is part of an expanded offering that will also see new videos on cervical cancer screening, harnessing positive stress and an explainer on dental healthcare.

Director of Audio and Language Content, David Hua said, It's great to have these important stories and resources available in our most widely spoken languages in Australia.

Looking after your health can be hard at the best of times, but it can be even more challenging when you have just arrived in Australia or have low English proficiency, so I'm thrilled we are celebrating the first birthday of Mind Your Health with more useful and important content for our audiences in their first languages.

It's important to know where to get help and our upcoming explainers on the importance of cancer screening and accessing free medical services will help support more Australians get the care they need.

Season two of the guided meditation podcast Great Minds hosted by Walkley-award winning journalist Sarah Malik is among the new content available, featuring five experts from different cultural disciplines. The first three episodes feature Warrimay Birrbay artist Nicole Smede and includes a Ngarayam rah* meditation, which focuses on listening to Country.

A new video on the importance of breast cancer screening in ten languages is available and an explainer video on accessing free medical services in 21 languages will be available on October 12.

Launched in October 2022, the Mind Your Health portal is an online collection of stories and resources from across the SBS network designed to inform and inspire multicultural, multilingual and First Nations audiences to care for their mental health and general wellbeing.

The Mind Your Health portal provides an array of trusted content from the practicalities of booking a doctor's appointment to finding mental health services in your language. The portal also features Mind Your Health in your language a collection of articles on health and wellbeing in ten languages - Arabic, Cantonese, English, Filipino, Hindi, Korean, Mandarin, Punjabi, Spanish, and Vietnamese.

Mind Your Health articles, videos and podcasts are available all year round here
