World Mental Health Day!

October 10 is World Mental Health Day and the goal is to help raise Mental Health awareness. This year’s theme set by the World Federation for Mental Health is “Make Mental health for all a global priority”.

Mental health problems affect around one in four people. They range from common problems, such as depression and anxiety, to rarer problems such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.

Mental health problems can affect anyone. We all have times when we feel down or stressed. Most of the time those feelings pass but sometimes they develop in to a more serious problem and that could happen to any one of us. Everyone is different. You may bounce back from a setback while someone else may feel weighed down by it for a long time. Your mental health doesn’t always stay the same. It can change as circumstances change.

Now more than ever, we need to find ways to stay connected with our community. No one should feel alone or without the information, support and help they need. It’s okay to feel unstable. It’s okay to need help. It’s okay not to be okay. Please take care of yourself. Make your mental health a priority!
