World Mental Health Day 2016
Each year 10 October is World Mental Health Day, a day to raise awareness about mental health.
We all know that mental health is something that’s an issue everyday, every week and month of the year. It also needs looking after all year around.
>>Inform yourself about ways to look after your mental health.
However, it’s important to have a day, to remind everyone the world over of the significance of mental health. Over the years, in Ireland, it has become more of a week with tonnes of events and activities on all around the country to mark it.
So, we’re busy bees this week at a number of these events.
