October is World Mental Health Month

By 1st October 2023No Comments

Today, Sunday, October 1 marks the beginning of World Mental Health month.

Since 1992 this global mental health awareness campaign has been spotlighting mental health issues and promoting calls for action and advocacy for positive change.

The theme of World Mental Health Month 2023 is “Mental Health is a Universal Human Right” and leading organisations working in this sector in Ireland will be working over the coming weeks to encourage people to have courageous conversations, to connect with others and to promote and improve mental health.

For example, Mental Health Ireland co-produced a while World Mental Health Month programme with the aim of ensuring that mental health and wellbeing becomes a priority across the country.

Check out a summary of the details in the accompanying image.

“We can all play a role in increasing our awareness of mental health, to have open conversations about mental health and in reducing the stigma attached. This campaign provides the ultimate opportunity for us all to build mental health awareness, united as one,” it states on its website.
