Why Everyone Should Take a Mental Health Day This Week

World Mental Health Day

What is World Mental Health Day?

Mark your calendars: October 10, 2019, is World Mental Health Day. Every year the World Health Organization designates a day dedicated to raising awareness of mental health issues around the world and mobilizing efforts in support of mental health. This year the focus is on suicide prevention. The WHO wants everyone to know how big this problem is—every 40 seconds someone loses their life to suicide—and that there are things you can do to prevent suicide, both in loved ones and yourself. (If you or someone you know is having thoughts about self-harm you can call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255 to get help.)
