World Mental Health Day is a day for global mental health education, awareness, and advocacy against social stigma. This is a day to talk about what needs to be done to make mental health care a reality for people worldwide.
According to the World Health Organization, someone loses their life to suicide, somewhere in the world, every 40 seconds. The United Nations revealed that 800,000 people die from suicide every year. Statistics also reveal that one adult in four, and one child in ten, would be diagnosed with a mental health issue every year.
Mental illnesses can have any face or background or social economic status, but there is one simple thing we can all do, that we strive to do at Harmony Day Support, staff and individuals alike….
Be kind to others when possible.
It is always possible!
