SERVPRO Framingham Honors Mental Health Day
World Mental Health Day is celebrated on October 10th. This day raises awareness and mobilizes efforts to support mental health.
Mental health is a hot topic today. It means that people aren’t shy to address mental health issues and people are finally getting the attention they deserve.
However, that doesn’t mean there isn’t still work to do and continue to create awareness.
Many often misunderstand mental health because it is hard to define. Mental health covers several areas and isn’t just a one name fits all. These areas involve social, emotional, and psychological well-being. It can affect thoughts, feelings, and actions. By having positive mental health, we handle stress better and are able to realize our full potential.
HOW TO OBSERVE #MentalHealthDay
Not everyone faces mental health issues, but mental health can impact everyone at one point or another. Discussing mental health with your loved ones is a vital part to create awareness.
- Organizations host a variety of events to increase awareness about this topic. Events may include educational seminars, free mental health screenings, walk-a-thons, marathons, conferences, mass media promotions, and public service announcements. You can find some here: https://www.nami.org/Get-Involved/Awareness-events
- If you know someone who struggles with a mental health disorder, this is a great day to reach out to them. Some might not feel comfortable talking to others about their diagnosis, but knowing they have someone to reach out to can be life-changing.
- You can also donate to an organization: National Alliance on Mental Health (NAMI) and the Brain and Behavior Research Foundation.
