October 10, 2014: World Mental Health Day
On Friday, October 10, 2014 people all across British Columbia – and the world – are celebrating World Mental Health Day. This day is an opportunity for us to learn and talk with others about mental health challenges and to understand that mental illness affects all of us – regardless of our age or background.
World Mental Health Day is also about removing the stigma and discrimination that individuals with mental illness often experience. We need to ensure that those affected by mental health challenges feel supported and empowered to seek the help they need.
If you or someone you know needs some support or help, please refer them to some of these ERASE Bullying mental health resources.
