World Mental Health Day 10 October 2018

3 Jul 2018 / News

World Mental Health Day 2018 will focus on young people and mental health in a changing world. Young people are spending most of their day on the internet – experiencing cyber crimes, cyber bullying, and playing violent video games. Suicide and substance abuse numbers have been steadily rising and LGBTQ youth are feeling alone and persecuted for being true to themselves. Young adults are at the age when serious mental illnesses can occur and yet they are taught little to nothing about mental health.
