World Mental Health Day

This year’s annual  World Mental Health Day is on the 10th October. The day aims to raise awareness of mental health and advocate against stigma. 

1 in 4 of us will experience some form of poor mental health in our lives. Our mental health doesn’t always stay the same – it can change as circumstances change, and as we move through different stages of life. 

Many of us may have experienced poor mental health for the first time in our lives throughout lockdowns due to increased stress and isolation. It’s important to know what that you are not alone, and it’s more important than ever for us to reach out and start conversations. 

Unfortunately, there is still a lot of stigma around mental health, making conversations about mental health difficult. Time to Change Wales have some great resources on talking about your mental health, talking to someone else about their mental health, and stigma. These resources, and more, can be accessed on the Time to Change Wales website.
