Taking place every year, World Mental Health Day – 10th October occurs to raise awareness of mental health issues. This is a global event to highlight mental health issues around the world and to support mental health. The day hopes to make mental health care a reality for everyone worldwide.
In 2018, World Mental Health Day – 10th October will focus on the theme of: ‘young people and mental health in a changing world’. This is because by the age of 14 almost half of all mental health illnesses begin. However, in many cases, these illnesses are undetected and untreated.
Worryingly, for those aged 15 to 29-years-old, suicide is the second leading cause of death. Furthermore, use of alcohol and illicit drugs in harmful quantities is a major issue leading to risky behaviours and is often a cover for underlying mental health issues.
How You Can Help World Mental Health Day – 10th October
The World Health Organisation recommends the more understanding can help with the prevention of mental health issues. They believe prevention comes from a better understanding of the early signs of warning and identifying the symptoms of mental health issues.
As a training provider, one of the ways you can help is by offering a Mental Health Awareness course. VideoTile provides a Mental Health Awareness e-learning course. We can fully brand the course with your theme, colours and logo. This will then enable your clients to have a better understanding of mental health. Furthermore, the course teaches the difference between mental health and mental illness.
The Mental Health Awareness course is ideal for all people who work with people who may be suffering from a condition related to mental health.
