Let’s Raise Awareness on World Mental Health Day

Let’s Raise Awareness on World Mental Health Day

Today is World Mental Health Day; let’s find out how we can get involved.

Every year, World Mental Health Day is observed on October 10th.  The goal of this day is to raise awareness for mental health issues and to generate public support for mental health initiatives.  This year, the theme of World Mental Health Day is “Mental Health in the Workplace.”  We’d like to invite you to join us ans get involved by following some of these suggestions.

1) A great way to exploit social media and to spread awareness for mental health issues is to use the hashtag #WorldMentalHealthDay.  This can help to get the message to our friends, families, and followers.  Additionally, we can also post on the World Mental Health Day Facebook and Twitter pages.

2) Another way we can get involved is encouraging our places of employment to hold educational programs about mental health in the workplace.  A resourceful educational program may include teaching employees stress management techniques and hopefully educate employees about the different mental health wellness assets we may have access to.

3) Finally, we can always do our part by showing appreciation and sensitivity to our coworkers and by doing our best to create a welcoming and supportive work environment.

As an overview, mental health includes an individual’s emotional, psychological and social well-being.  Estimates suggest that there are approximately 350 million people who suffer from depression in our world.

Established in 1992, World Mental Health Day was created by the World Federation for Mental Health. The Foundation aims to provide further awareness and assistance for those suffering from a wide range of mental disorders in the hopes of saving lives and increasing quality of life for these individuals.
