World Mental Health Day


Note: This is an updated post originally shared on October 10, 2022. You'll find excellent resources for mental wellbeing linked in this short post.


Make Mental Health and Well Being a global priority for all.



World Mental Health Day - October 10 - and every day is a perfect day to reflect on the importance of mental health for ourselves and everyone.


Mental Health is an inside job. Many of us want to treat mental illness “out there” in the world. But Mental Health and positive Well-Being begins with each of us.


It begins with positive Self-Care: eating well, sleeping well, exercising, socializing and taking good care of our Selves and our families.


We can practice mindful self-awareness, and take responsibility for our inner states. If/when you notice yourself feeling angry, anxious, upset or stressed, click on the Videos in our Self-Help section, and shift your state, gently and easily.


Feelings ---- whether "positive" or "negative" ----- are contagious. As the saying goes, "misery loves company." But happy people are happy, in part, because they have happy friends with whom they are actively involved.


Today, and every day, make it a point to reach out and touch someone.


The one you touch may be you.
