Over at the Psych Central website, they’ve started up a blog party in support of World Mental Health Day,
World Mental Health Day is promoted by the World Health Organization to help raise awareness about mental health issues. The day promotes open discussion of mental disorders, and what the world’s governments and health organizations are doing in prevention, promotion and treatment services.
So they’ve encouraged everyone to blog today about mental health, and have been gathering a list of everyone who has participated over on their site. I haven’t had a chance to start reading through the various blog posts yet, but I expect there will be lots of good stuff, and ultimately, what’s wrong with raising a little awareness about mental health issues? As I said in my contribution to the party, you do know someone with mental health issues!
