World Mental Health Day 10 October
We all need to look after our mental health, just as we do our physical health. Wednesday 10 October is World Mental Health Day and the theme this year is ‘Young people and mental health in a changing world’, so it’s a great opportunity to show your support for better mental health and make sure you’re looking after your own wellbeing.
