World Mental Health Day 2020

5th October 2020

Looking after your mental health and wellbeing is just as important as taking care of your physical health… and so we’re pleased to mark World Mental Health Day, in association with the Mental Health Foundation and recognised by the World Health Organisation, on Saturday 10th October 2020.

This year’s theme is ‘mental health for all’.Twitter 1200x675 0

The mental health issues related to the current pandemic are hard for everyone, but especially those already battling poor mental health. Problems can span from everyday worries to more serious and long-term conditions and while symptoms and severity can vary greatly, one thing that the majority of cases have in common is that they can be alleviated, or even overcome, with the right professional help.

Mental health problems, especially those such as anxiety and depression, are very common and working to improve your mental health and emotional wellbeing is for everyone. Prioritising your own mental health as a form of self-care can help you to better cope with – and bounce back from – life’s stressful and difficult situations, as well as protect against problems developing or worsening.

Even if you are currently unaffected, it is likely someone in your life may be struggling with one or more mental health problems. This is why campaigns like World Mental Health Day are so important and wide-reaching, promoting awareness of mental health issues, encouraging conversation and working hard to dispel the stigma that still sometimes surround the subject.

Visit the Mental Health Foundation website to find out more about World Mental Health Day, including how you get involved, resources for fundraising, guidance for supporting your own, or someone else’s, mental health, sources for getting help if you need it, and much more.

If you find yourself struggling and are concerned you may be developing a mental health problem, please reach out to your GP practice or to someone you trust as soon as you feel able and take the first step in finding the support you need.
