News Item: World Mental Health Day 10th October

World Mental Health Day 2020 is the most important one yet. Months of lockdown, financial worry and loss have had a huge impact on us all, and prioritising mental health has never been more important.

According to research, more than half of adults (60%) and over two thirds of young people (68%) said their mental health got worse during lockdown (16,000 people surveyed). We know that many have developed new mental health problems as a result of the pandemic and, for some of us, existing mental health problems have gotten worse.

This year HAE EHA, along with the mental health charity Mind, are asking members to do one thing, or make a small change to help improve mental health.

Making positive change can seem difficult, especially during uncertain times. And sometimes, it can be hard to know where to start. Take the opportunity this World Mental Health Day to find out how you can do one thing by clicking here.
