World Mental Health Day

World Mental Health Day – an awareness day to help raise awareness of mental health.

World Mental Health Day

This awareness day got started in 1992 by the World Federation for Mental Health. In Australia this day runs along with Mental Health Week. Last years theme, 2017, mental health in the workplace was for people with depression and anxiety disorders and the impact on our ability to work, and to work productively. This year, 2018, is about Young people and mental health in a changing world.

This day is held annually on October 10.
