World Mental Health Day
The World Health Organisation recognises World Mental Health Day on 10 October every year.
The day provides an opportunity “for all stakeholders working on mental health issues to talk about their work, and what more needs to be done to make mental health care a reality for people worldwide”. This year’s theme set by the World Federation for Mental Health is mental health in the workplace.
