Mental Health Day 2019

Thursday 10th October will be Mental Health Day and it is an important chance to raise awareness of the mental health issues that many people face.

2019’s theme is suicide prevention. It is estimated that 800,000 die each year through suicide, with many more attempts, and it is the leading cause of death of 20-34 year olds in the UK, yet it can be avoided.  Talking about mental health and suicide can remove the taboo that still surrounds it and can encourage those who are feeling suicidal to get help.
