World Mental Health Day

This year many of us have faced unexpected challenges and changes which have impacted mental health and wellbeing on a global scale, it came like hurricane and destroyed every plan, thought and mostly our social life.

World Mental Health Day (10 October) is an international day for global mental health education, awareness and advocacy against social stigma. It was first celebrated in 1992 at the initiative of the World Federation for Mental Health, a global mental health organization with members and contacts in more than 150 countries

”We know that the levels of anxiety, fear, isolation, social distancing and restrictions, uncertainty and emotional distress experienced have become widespread as the world struggles to bring the virus under control and to find solutions” (https://wfmh.global).

I know that for some people, spending time out, with friends and socializing it’s vital. The pandemic took everything away, more people are developing anxiety, stress, depression. Take care of your mental health by thinking positively, enjoy the family around you, we will get over this!
