World Mental Health Day
TODAY IS WORLD MENTAL HEALTH DAY
“World Mental Health Day is about raising awareness of mental health and driving positive change for everyone’s mental health. It’s also a chance to talk about mental health, how we need to look after it, and how important it is to get help if you are struggling.” (from https://www.mentalhealth.org.uk/)
