Today, The Morning Thing focused on the topic of Mental Health. This is an important topic for all of us.
1 in 4 people will experience some kind of mental health problem during their lifetime and many more will see friends or family members who are affected. Yet, mental health is one of the most neglected forms of health in the world today. Almost one billion people are living with a mental health disorder right now and millions of people die each year from the impact that mental health has had on them.
World Mental Health Day was established in 1992 by the World Federation for Mental Health. The purpose of World Mental Health Day is to raise awareness of mental health issues, increase education on the topic and attempt to eliminate the stigma attached. It is hoped that this, in turn, will encourage sufferers to seek out help and support.
