World Mental Health Day

World Mental Health Day, observed on October 10, is a global initiative dedicated to mental health education, awareness, and advocacy against social stigma. Inaugurated in 1992 by the World Federation for Mental Health, a global organization with members and contacts in over 150 countries, this annual awareness program attracts thousands of supporters each October. Its aim is to shine a spotlight on mental illness and its significant impact on people's lives worldwide. Furthermore, the day serves as a platform for mental health professionals to engage in discussions and illuminate their work, fostering a global commitment to prioritizing mental health. In some countries, this day is part of a broader awareness week, such as Mental Health Week in Australia.
