The World Health Organization (WHO) made World Mental Health Awareness Day....because mental health is a problem across the entire world.
The problem with awareness days is, it is like seeing a house on fire, gathering together and watching it, instead picking up a hose or calling 911 so the fire department can come and put it out.
No one is really doing much to take the problem and fix it! Saying something is happening, is not the same as doing anything about it.
World Mental Health Day is observed on 10 October every year, with the overall objective of raising awareness of mental health issues around the world and mobilizing efforts in support of mental health. 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.
That is why today the feature video is The Doors People Are Strange.
When people know how much power they do have over mental illness, things change for the better. When people know they can heal, they have hope that their lives can get better, and they seek it.
Want to change the outcome? Then change the conversation!
