October 10 is promoted as a World Mental Health Day by the World Health Organization (WHO). Its overall objective is to raise awareness of mental health issues and to mobilize efforts in support of mental health around the world.
Thinking and Acting e.V.* warmly invites you to join the initiative of WHO by understanding, supporting and respecting each other in different stages of life.
Why might this be relevant to all of us?
According to WHO, depression is a common illness worldwide, with an estimated number of 350 million people of all ages affected. Depression is the leading cause of disability worldwide, and is a major contributor to the global burden of disease. One in four people in the world will be affected by mental or neurological disorders at some point in their lives caused by stress and other factors. Currently around 450 million people suffer from such conditions, placing mental health issues among the main causes of disability. Also, in accordance to the study of the University of Dresden 4 out of 10 Europeans suffer from psychological problems. Despite all this evident statistics, global mental health still remains a taboo to talk about.
Let`s inform ourselves on mental health in order to accept, understand and support each other.
