World Mental Health Awareness Day!

This day is dedicated to spreading awareness about mental health issues, advocating for those who may be navigating their own journey with mental illness, and reducing stigma around mental health disorders and their symptoms worldwide. Mental health concerns are one of the main causes of worldwide overall disease burden, with mental health and behavioral problems being the main causes of disability in 20 to 29 year-olds (Mental Health Foundation). Taking care of your mental health and reducing stigma is essential to preserving overall health of yourself and others.

Take some time today to take care of your own mental health and wellness by:

  1. Talking about your feelings
  2. Keeping active
  3. Eating well
  4. Drinking sensibly
  5. Keeping in touch
  6. Asking for help
  7. Taking a break
  8. Doing something you’re good at
  9. Accepting who you are
  10. Caring for others

If you or someone you know is struggling with mental health, please know you are not alone and help is available.
