10th Oct - World Mental Health Day

Posted October 10, 2019 from Bangladesh

World Mental Health Day is an opportunity for all of us to raise awareness of mental health issues and advocate against social stigma.

The day provides an opportunity for you and your organisation to add to the wider conversation that will be occurring on social media, television and elsewhere. Highlight the fantastic work you're already doing to address mental health stigma in the workplace, and introduce new and targeted activities anchored to the event.

What is this year's theme? The theme of this year’s event is suicide and suicide prevention.

Every year close to 800,000 people globally take their own life and there are many more people who attempt suicide. Every suicide is a tragedy that affects families, communities and has long-lasting effects on the people left behind. It's the leading cause of death among young people aged 20-34 years in the UK and is the second leading cause of death among 15-29 year-olds globally

What Time to Change activities can you deliver? This World Mental Health Day, we encourage you all to consider how you can create learning opportunities for all your staff, raise their overall level of understanding of mental health, and specifically address the stigma around suicide so as to support those who might most need help.

Hello, dear Husna,

Thank you for sharing this important information. The rate of depression and suicide is alarmingly increasing. It’s important to talk about mental health and to spread awareness that doing so is not seeking pity or attention.

Happy World Mental Health Day!

Hi Husna,

How are you doing, dear? Thanks for sharing your important post and message and for spreading awareness around this issue. That's a staggering suicide statistic! I've heard that depression is on the rise in the U.S., but it sounds like it's a global issue. I don't think people becoming more disconnected has helped.
