World Mental Health Day
World Mental Health Day takes place this year on Sunday 10th October 2021. First launched in 1992, the day is dedicated to educate and raise awareness of all things mental health and fight against the social stigma surrounding mental health.
The Coronavirus pandemic has had a major impact on people’s mental health, making this year’s day the most important yet. 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).
HAE EHA has collated some useful guidance and resources surrounding mental health, these can be found below.
