“This year, we’re inviting you to join us for the 6th annual blog party on Monday, October 10. Mental health is important to all of us, and we need your help to spread that message! So how do you join in on the party?
The World Health Organization’s Mental Health Day topic this year is psychological first-aid, the kind of mental health help that is provided to people after a crisis, like a hurricane, school shooting, some other tragedy, or terrorist event. What is psychological first-aid?
Participation in the blog party is easy. All you need do is commit to publishing a blog entry on Monday, Oct. 10, 2016, about a mental health issue that’s close to your heart. While you’re encouraged to write about psychological first-aid or how you survived a crisis, natural disaster, or some other traumatic event in your life, you can write about anything mental-health related that will help get the word out.”
If you’re blogging about anything, why don’t you take a day to talk about mental health, and help raise awareness for how wide-spread this problem truly is, and how many people all around us are dealing with this everyday. It’s not just “those people” it’s all of us.
