World Mental Health Day

Date: 10 Oct 2014

World Mental Health Day is the annual global celebration of mental health education, awareness and advocacy.

 

Every year - on 10 October - we join together in shining the spotlight on a particular aspect of mental ill health and the theme in 2014 is "Living with Schizophrenia". 

 
 

Schizophrenia affects around 26 million people across the world and is the focus of World Mental Health Day this year. 

Despite being a treatable disorder, more than 50% of people with schizophrenia cannot access adequate treatment, and 90% of people with untreated schizophrenia live in the developing world.

On 10 October we celebrate the most important day in the mental health calendar and shine the spotlight on "living" with schizophrenia. From those who face every day of their lives with it, to their families, friends, doctors and even society as a whole, we all have a part to play in raising awareness of schizophrenic illness.
