Mental Health Awareness day is the 10th October 2018. 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 young people and mental health in a changing world.
Titles we recommend prior to Mental Health Awareness Day are:
From My Heart by Dr Neil Hawkes - inspiring individuals, families, schools, communities, companies and organisations to be values-based.
