World Mental Health Day is Today

When is World Mental Health Day?

World Mental Health Day takes place annually on October 10. It is recognized as a global day of awareness for Mental Health on the tenth day of October (October 10), every year.

What is World Mental Health Day?

World Mental Health Day is a global awareness day intended to promote mental health advocacy and educate the public on relevant issues. World Mental Health Day was initially an annual event of the World Federation for Mental Health (WFMH), and is now recognized by the World Health Organization and other organizations throughout the world. The World Health Organization (WHO) is a specialized agency of the United Nations whose purpose is international public health and the attainment by all people of the highest possible level of health.

What is Mental Health?

Mental Health refers to the condition of a person's emotional, psychological, or social well-being. Positive mental health allows people to reach their full potential. Mental health problems can affect a person's thinking, mood, and behavior. Many factors contribute to mental health issues including: (1) biological factors, such as brain chemistry and genetics, (2) family history of mental health problems, and; (3) life experiences, such as physical trauma or emotional abuse.

Why Celebrate?

We think it is important to acknowledge the importance of mental health to human life and take appreciation of the condition of our mental health. Our team serves people with all types of disabilities, including those with psychosocial, intellectual, and cognitive disabilities every day. We support the global initiative to promote acceptance of individuals with disabilities, and to improve quality of life and care of people dealing with mental health conditions. It is a day for discussion, education, and acceptance. 

Celebrate World Mental Health Day today, and every day!
