World Mental Health Day 2015

World Mental Health Day is on the 10th of October each year since 1992.

Originally created by the World Health Organisation (WHO), previous years have highlighted certain themes such as “Mental health and older adults” and “Living with schizophrenia“.

This year’s theme is “Dignity in mental health“, which aims to raise issues of respect and inclusion, whilst also demanding better standards of training and policy.

You can read the full WHO report into this year’s World Mental Health Day theme here. It’s a long read, but highlights the many factors of personal and societal care needed to provide good mental health services, as well as highlighting interesting statistics and providing stories of personal experience.
