Recognize Mental Illness Awareness Week and Participate in World Mental Health Day
In Case You Haven't Heard
Sunday, October 10, 2010, is World Mental Health Day! World Mental Health Day receives organizational support from the World Federation for Mental Health and occurs on the last day of Mental Illness Awareness Week.
To cap off the week and celebrate World Mental Health Day , we wanted to provide some highlights of the things SAMHSA is doing and some great activities others in the field have done to show how important it is to discuss mental health problems and break down the misconceptions and barriers to recovery. To check out these initiatives and related resources, visit the NEWSAMHSA Dialogue Blog!
About the Blog
