A drive towards Mental Health Awareness
Let’s Talk; Let’s Connect
10 October 2017 also marked a significant day around the globe as World Mental Health Day. An educational campaign, World Mental Health Day aims to promote and advocate mental health to the global community. It’s a network of supporters putting the focus on mental health which certainly does not begin when a health crisis occurs, and it does not end after World Mental Health Day. The conversations need to continue, and we can be there for each other. Every person deserves the opportunity to have a positive and fulfilling life experience. Let’s break our culture of silence.
