World Mental Health Day History
World Mental Health Day seeks to raise awareness about mental illness. This day aims to educate the population and mobilize efforts in support of mental health. Mental health includes a person's emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It has become increasingly important in recent decades as an estimated 350 million people worldwide suffer from depression.
In 1992, the World Federation for Mental Health (WFMH) established World Mental Health Day in an effort to promote education and advocate for mental health sufferers. The Foundation aims to provide further awareness and assistance for those suffering from a wide range of mental disorders in the hopes of saving lives and increasing quality of life for these individuals. World Mental Health Day is celebrated annually on October 10th.
