World Mental Health Day (WMHD) October 10th
World Mental Health Day is a day for global mental health education, awareness and advocacy. An initiative of the world federation for mental health, WMHD is an annual program to raise public awareness of mental health issues worldwide.
As many as one in five Australians may develop a mental illness at some stage in their lives. Everyone is vulnerable to mental health problems. It affects people regardless of age, culture, education or income.
This year’s theme ‘Dignity in Mental Health-Psychological & Mental Health First Aid for All’ will enable us to contribute to the goal of taking mental health out of the shadows so that people in general feel more confident in tackling the stigma, isolation and discrimination that continues to plague people with mental health conditions, their families and carers.
This year, the focus is on what keeps us mentally fit. How do we build resilience, practice mindfulness and foster good thoughts and feelings? Let’s strike up the conversation. –
