This year’s World Mental Health Day will take place on 10th October 2012 and will be celebrated around the world.
The day was created by the World Health Organisation (WHO) to raise public awareness of mental health issues.
This year’s theme is “Depression: A Global Crisis”. World Mental Health Day aims to get us all talking openly about mental illnesses and the treatment and preventions that are available to us all.
It’s thought that around 154 million people around the world suffer from depression, so it’s likely that you or someone you know will be affected by mental illness during your lifetime.
