The World Health Organisation recognises World Mental Health Day on the 10th October every year. The day provides an opportunity “for all stakeholders working on mental health issues to talk about their work, and what more needs to be done to make mental health care a reality for people worldwide.” Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social wellbeing.
This year Oxfordshire Mind are launching a World Mental Health Day campaign to get staff, service users, local workplaces, local educational institutions, National and Local Government talking about Mental Health through submitting contributions into the #OxMindWMHD book.
A contribution into the book could be a Pledge, Photo, Art Work, Personal Experience or Journey, Challenges Faced, Poem, Literature to name a few! Everyone has mental health and these contributions are a chance for you to express what mental health means to you. This campaign allows individuals the opportunity to open up, discuss their challenges (and how they have overcome them), and break the stigma surrounding mental health challenges.
Contributions can be submitted in confidence or named. Oxfordshire Mind will be accepting contributions until the 10th October, these will then be bound into a book and presented on World Mental Health Day.
