The World Health Organisation recognises World Mental Health Day on 10 October every year.
The day provides an opportunity “for all stakeholders working on mental health issues to talk about their work, and what more needs to be done to make mental health care a reality for people worldwide”. This year’s theme set by the World Federation for Mental Health is young people and mental health in a changing world.
As well as joining over 300 hundred radio stations around the UK in the #mentalhealthminute at 10.59am with some very special guests including HRH Prince William, HRH Prince Harry and Jessica Ennis-Hill, we will also be replaying Jordan’s recent interview with Jake Moores as they discuss the National Citizen Service campaign to #stopthestigma at 11am.
If you would like to support World Mental Health day, please support the Mental Health Foundation campaign and text THRIVE to 70300 to donate £3. Full terms and conditions at mentalhealth.org.uk/terms
