October is Mental Health Month and Saturday October 10 is World Mental Health Day.
World Mental Health Day is observed on 10 October every year, with the aim to raise awareness of mental health issues around the world and mobilise efforts in support of mental health.
The day provides an opportunity for all stakeholders working on mental health issues to talk about their work, and what more needs to be done to make mental health care a reality for people worldwide.
World Mental Health Day reminds us to take time out to appreciate the value of mental health and invest in our wellbeing.
Mental Health for All
This year’s theme is ‘mental health for all’.
There are many ways to take care of your own mental health:
- Schedule time for physical activity
- Do mindfulness or self awareness activities
- Catch up with friends
- Check in with someone you haven’t heard from
- Learn something new
- Help an older person in your life
Take Time out for World Mental Health Day
Mental health is a challenge that most of us will experience in our lifetime, either directly or amongst our friends and family.
Checking in with those around you can be extremely powerful. Make the most of Mental Health Month and start a conversation today.
