Upcoming Global Awareness Days

Global awareness days like World Suicide Prevention Day and World Mental Health Day (Thursday 10 October) are a great opportunity for us all to start conversations and change attitudes around mental health.

World Suicide Prevention Day is an awareness day observed on 10 September every year, in order to provide worldwide commitment and action to prevent suicides, with various activities around the world since 2003.

World Mental Health Day is a day for global mental health education, awareness and advocacy against social stigma. It was first celebrated in 1992 at the initiative of the World Federation for Mental Health, a global mental health organization with members and contacts in more than 150 countries.
