World Mental Health Awareness Day Monday October 10 2016

9th Oct 2016

This Monday (10th October) is World Mental Health Awareness Day, organised by the World Health Organisation.

 

The annual event this year is focused on depression which, it estimates, will be the world’s most common illness by the year 2030 unless something is done soon to help those with the condition.

 

This year’s theme meanwhile is psychological first aid - placing a focus on ensuring that anyone who is suffering from mental health issues is able to receive help and support from those around them - just as they would if they required physical first aid.
