World Mental Health Day
10th of October is an international day for World Mental Health education, awareness and defense against social shame. This day was proudly celebrated first in 1992 at the initiative of the World Federation for Mental Health, a global mental health organisation with members from over 150 countries!
On this day, thousands of people come together to celebrate this annual awareness day to bring attention to mental illness and its massive effects on peoples' lives all over the world. In Australia, they celebrate this for one whole week.
The world as we know it is experiencing the crazy impact of the current global health emergency due to COVID-19. This has impacted on the mental health of millions of people. The levels of anxiety, fear, isolation, social distancing and restrictions have caused emotional distress and many have experienced the struggle of bringing the virus under control and to find solutions.
COVID-19 has increased mental health conditions, it has risen a lot through out the globe. About 450 million people live with mental disorders.
Being kind to someone may make their whole day better. Kindness is always the answer. You may help someone more than you know. It does not have to be something grand. Even just by smiling at someone, you are helping.
