Mental Health Awareness Month - October, 2015

There are a number of events in October, being Mental Health Awareness Month; October 4, 2015 to October 11, 2015 is Mental Health Week and October 10th is World Mental Health Day.

The 2015 Mental Health Month Theme has been announced as “Value Your Mind”, by the Mental Health Association. 

The main message the Mental Health Association wish to convey with this campaign is to encourage all individuals to:

“think about how mental health exists in their daily life & promote the need for all individuals to make mental health a priority in their daily lives. When we make our mental health a priority, we are practicing self - care which is an important part of our daily living to ensure the maintenance of a balanced wellbeing.”
