World Mental Health Day

Join us on Monday 10th October and make mental health and wellbeing your number one priority this World Mental Health Day (WMHD).

The World Federation for Mental Health has set the theme: ‘make mental health and wellbeing for all a global priority.’

This is an important day for Mental Health UK as we strive to ensure that everyone has the tools to live their best life. We hope that everyone will join in and share our ‘Number 1’ campaign. We want everyone to think about how they can look after ‘number one’ when it comes to mental health.

So ask yourself ……

With everything that is happening around us, it can be easy to feel powerless, but there are aspects of our life we can manage and control. We want to encourage everyone to embrace what is in their power to start doing, stop doing or change – something which will support your mental health.

Circle of Control

When thinking about aspects of your life that you can make a priority – you might find it helpful to visualise the ‘circle of control’. What aspects of your life can you make a priority? What brings meaning and comfort in your life – are they within your control? You are sure to find something that within your circle of control that can bring about a positive impact on your mental health.

You can make it Number One

We would like to encourage everyone to share Mental Health UK's #NumberOne campaign for World Mental Health Day.

Whether you are an individual, family, school, workplace or community group - you can ensure that mental health is a number one priority.
