Next week, Thursday 10th October, is World Mental Health Day. This is the 27th consecutive year that it has been recognised worldwide, and the 22nd year to carry a dedicated theme. This year's theme is Suicide Prevention.
Since it was first recognised on 10th October 1992, hundreds of worldwide, nationwide, regional and local organisations, communities and individuals have been, in a variety of interesting and innovative ways, raising awareness and support of mental health and Mental Health Issues right across the world in over 100 countries.
With themes ranging from 'Mental Health and Human Rights (1998)' to "Living with Schizophrenia (2014)" World Mental Health day has looked to address a wide range of topics.
This year's theme is Suicide Prevention and the World Mental Health Federation have put together a pack of helpful "Tools and Tips" which you can find here - https://wfmh.global/wmhd2019-tools-and-tips/
